Man faces 20 to 25 years in prison for 2010 murder

DANVILLE — A 26-year-old Danville man is facing between 20 and 25 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the fatal shooting of another Danville man in May 2010.

Jemarius J. Forman, who lived in the 200 block of California St. but has been behind bars since his arrest 2 years ago, pleaded guilty in Vermilion County Circuit Court on Tuesday to first-degree murder-bodily harm in connection with the death of 21-year-old Juane Anglin.

Vermilion County State's Attorney Randy Brinegar said Forman could receive 20 to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced. His sentencing hearing is set for 2 p.m. on Nov. 29.

"Whatever he receives, he'll have to serve 100 percent minus the days he's already spent in the (Danville Public Safety Building)," Brinegar said.

Mr. Anglin was shot multiple times in the Dollar General parking lot, 100 N. Griffin St. around 6:30 p.m. on May 11, 2010. He was pronounced dead at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

Forman was taken into custody at the scene of the shooting.

Brinegar said Forman and Mr. Anglin were acquaintances. They had been sitting in separate vehicles in the parking lot when Forman got out of his car and shot the other man.

Brinegar said the two had been arguing over the sale of an automobile.
