PEORIA, Ill. -- A 21-year-old Peoria man has been sentenced to 70 years in prison for murder and attempted murder.

Terrance Tuson was not the trigger man in the shooting that killed Shannon Elmore but in August a jury ruled he was legally responsible for her death.

Tuson was involved in the October 10, 2011 slaying of Elmore, who was a front seat passenger in a parked car near the intersection of Columbia Terrace and Ellis that was sprayed with bullets. She later died at Methodist Medical Center.

The target of that shooting was Jemeral Linwood. He was not injured.

Wesley M. Collins, 20, turned himself in days after the shooting. Collins is charged with four counts of First Degree Murder. His trial is scheduled to begin October 28.
