Men who made deals with prosecutors in exchange for their testimony in two murder trials have pleaded guilty to aggravated battery with a firearm.
Jared Fox, 27, and Charles Campo, 33, entered guilty pleas to the Class X felony charge Wednesday. Although the offense typically is punishable by as many as 30 years in prison, the men hope to receive a sentence of no more than 10 years as part of their agreements with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors also have agreed to dismiss first-degree murder charges against both men, who are scheduled for sentencing June 6.
Fox and Campo, both of Wonder Lake, testified against the two men who prosecutors said entered a McHenry home May 27, 2017, and shot and killed 52-year-old Donald Jouravleff.
Adam Morris and Byron Howard each were convicted of first-degree murder and other charges at their respective jury trials. McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather is expected to hand down their sentences in May.
All four men were arrested and charged in connection with the home invasion and shooting, which occurred at the home of a woman for whom Morris previously worked as a subcontractor, prosecutors said.
