A Peoria man, indicted in connection with the city's second homicide of 2010, was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to second degree murder. 22 year old Preston Marizetts was charged with the March 2010 killing of a pregnant Peoria woman, 19 year old Jasmine Brittine. Police say Brittine was an innocent bystander who got caught in the middle after an argument between two men escalated. Marizetts was convicted of first degree murder but the first conviction was tossed out on appeal.
