ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A 21-year-old will serve nearly his age in prison as part of a 20-year plea deal in connection to a fatal beating in Rockford.

Andrew Villarreal pled guilty to second degree murder today.

Detectives say he was one of the men who attacked Christian Hernandez with a baseball ban back in June 2010. Hernandez died in the hospital a week later.
