UPDATE: Herrera Sentenced for 2009 Murder

UPDATE: ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- After two mistrials, a Rockford man is heading to prison for murder.

Jesse Herrera was sentenced today to 54 years in connection to the 2009 shooting death of Kerry Davis.

Herrera will get credited 1,448 days as time served the nearly 4 years he’s already been in jail.

Following his release, Herrera will be under court supervision for 3 years.


UPDATE: ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- After 18 hours of deliberation, Jesse Herrera's jury could not reach a unanimous decision, forcing judge John Truitt to declare a mistrial. You may recall Herrera is accused of killing Kerry Davis back in 2009. Prosecutors will likely try again.


ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford Police have released the name of suspect in the murder of a 34 year old Rockford man. Police have identified 21 year old Jesse J. Herrera as a suspect in the shooting of Kerry Davis.

Davis was shot and then dumped from a vehicle about 3:30 yesterday in an alley near the 800 block of King in Rockford. Investigators say Davis was transported to Rockford Memorial Hospital, where he later died. An autopsy on Davis is scheduled for today.

Herrera is in the Winnebago County Jail on $8,000 bod for two warrants and one million dollars bond for First Degree Murder.

    From the Veal family and BOOKIE, an asset to the world has left and it will never be the same. The one fondest memory I have of Goldie is when he asked my auntie to roll up her heavy rug and put in the basement! He always did goodwill gestures like taking us to breakfast! You will be missed!
