PEORIA, Ill. -- A member of the "Bomb Squad" street gang has made a guilty plea to felony weapons charges.

Lloyd Dotson, 22, had been arrested in connection with the killing of Tyrann Chester in July.

He was never charged with Chester's death.

On Monday he pleaded to charges of "unlawful use of a weapon by a felon'.

A two-year prison sentence was agreed on.

Chester's body was found in the backseat of an SUV parked in the 3000 block of Seibold.

Mytrez Flora, who was arrested at the same time, has a trial on similar charges set for next month.
