A 23-year-old convicted killer was handed a 107-year prison sentence Monday. And in doing so, Circuit Judge Kathy Bradshaw-Elliott told Kamron Taylor "you are extremely dangerous."
Taylor was sentenced to prison for the June 2013 murder of 21-year-old Nelson Williams Jr. Prosecutors say he's a suspect in at least one other death, an unsolved homicide that occurred a month earlier.
Taylor appeared in court for sentencing with the same smug look, shackled and wearing a black and white jumpsuit. He showed little emotion as Judge Elliott handed down the sentence.
Taylor's violent and much-publicized escape from the Kankakee County Jail in April made national headlines. He beat and nearly killed a correctional officer in the escape. Three days later, Taylor was captured in Chicago.
In court Monday, prosecutors revealed Taylor was a suspect in the murder of ex-convict Orlando Wilson just a month before Nelson Williams was killed.
The Daily-Journal also reported Taylor was also a suspect in the robbery of a Kankakee credit union in August 2012. But he's never been charged for those crimes.
