105-Year Sentence Upheld for Man in Lake Co. Execution-Style Killing

A Lake County judge this past week upheld a 105-year sentence for a 30-year-old Kenosha, Wis., man found guilty of shooting and killing a Round Lake Park woman "execution-style"during a robbery six years ago at a Check N' Go in Waukegan, according to the Daily Herald. 

The judge denied a motion Tuesday to reduce Montego Suggs' sentence from 105 years to 80 years, according to the article. 

An earlier Daily Herald article reports Suggs was sentenced to 80 years in prison for killing Melinda Morrell, 22, who was working as a clerk at the Check N' Go, during the robbery on May 21, 2007. 

The Daily Herald reports he was also sentenced to an additional 30 years in prison for trying to kill a clerk at a grocery store in Beach Park and 28 years for trying to rob the business. Those sentences will be served concurrently, according to the article. 

The Daily Herald has more on the most recent court appearance for Montego Suggs.
