DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — A 22-year-old Decatur man will spend decades in prison for killing an 18-year-old boy at a restaurant over two years ago.
Matthew A. Anderson Jr. was sentenced to 50 years in prison for murder before Associate Judge James R. Coryell.
WCIA reported the man killed 18-year-old Curtis Hariston at Long John Silvers in 2019. A jury found Anderson guilty of the crime last month.
Prosecutors presented video evidence in court that showed Anderson going into a bathroom and pulling out an object.
