Man convicted in 2011 killing in Decatur

DECATUR, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois man faces at least 66 years in prison after being convicted of killing a teenager and shooting at two of that victim’s friends in Decatur.

A Macon County jury deliberated more than three hours Friday before finding 20-year-old Tre McSpadden guilty of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

McSpadden was accused of gunning down 18-year-old Devin Kirk in April 2011 as the victim and two other teenagers walked in an alley.

Kirk was shot in the back and buttocks and died three hours later at a hospital. The other two teenagers were unharmed.
