Danville man gets 65 year sentence for shooting


URBANA (AP) -- A 20-year-old Danville man has been sentenced to 65 years in prison for a Fourth of July shooting that killed a Champaign woman last year.


The News-Gazette reports Treshaun Jake was sentenced Thursday. He was convicted of first-degree murder for the 2012 death of 20-year-old Desirae Austin.


Prosecutors say Austin was hit in the chest by one of dozens of rounds that were intended for two brothers.


Jake is the second person to be sentenced for the shooting. Co-defendant Anthony Meads was sentenced to 50 years in prison in August after being convicted.


Both men maintain their innocence.
