Man, 26, gets 80 years for killing security guard at Rockford bar www.privateofficer.com
Judge John Truitt sentenced Martavion Sanders on Tuesday for the 2008 shooting at Chivo’s Bar.
A jury in April found Sanders guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Tyrone Thompson. Security guard Ronald Fair was seriously injured in the shooting but survived.
Sanders also was convicted of aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon.
Authorities say Sanders became upset after being removed from the bar, returned with a weapon and shot both men.
