Sheley Sentencing Scheduled for Monday

WGIL Newsroom . Local News, State News 138

MORRISON, Ill. (AP) — A man serving life sentences for two killings in Illinois is to be sentenced a third time after he was convicted in May for the deaths of four others.

The Telegraph in Dixon reports that Nicholas Sheley’s sentencing hearing is Monday in Whiteside County Court. He was convicted in May of murder for fatally beating three people and a 2-year-old with a hammer in a northwest Illinois apartment.

The killings were part of a series of crimes authorities say Sheley committed in the summer of 2008, stretching from his hometown of Sterling, Illinois, south to St. Louis.

Sheley already is serving life sentences for the deaths of two Illinois men that June. He is due to be tried next in Missouri for the deaths of an Arkansas couple.
