BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — A Decatur man was convicted Thursday of murder for the Dec. 2018 death of a Bloomington man in McLean County.

According to The Pantagraph, Anthony Grampsas, 20, was found guilty by a McLean County jury of first-degree murder. Grampsas was accused of being involved in the shooting and killing of Egerton Dover, 20, inside Dover’s West Jefferson Street home. The Pantagraph reported Assistant State’s Attorney Tammara Wagoner said Grampsas was “charged as an accessory.”
