McQueen Sentencing



A Lawrence County, Illinois Circuit Court Judge sentenced a Mount Carmel, Illinois man to 50-years in prison Friday in connection with a murder-for-hire scheme.

22-year-old Tyler McQueen was convicted of First Degree Murder in May in the stabbing death of 78-year-old Robert Westall at Westall’s apartment at United Methodist Village in Lawrenceville.

48-year-old Helen Marie Westall is accused of hiring McQueen to kill her uncle for 10-thousand dollars and a car.

She is scheduled to stand trial next month in Benton, Illinois for Conspiracy to Commit Murder for Hire.
