A Peoria teenager, charged in connection with a homicide last year, was sentenced Thursday to 19 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated battery with a firearm. 17 year old Marquis Flora was charged in connection with the murder of Michael Robinson, who prosecutors believe was killed during a botched robbery last September on West Starr Street. Another teen is now serving a 30 year sentence for the crime and a third teen is awaiting sentencing. The murder victim, Michael Robinson spent almost three decades in prison himself for the 1977 beating death of a Bradley University professor.
