Murder, manhunt suspect gets life in prison
KENOSHA, Wis. — A Wisconsin man who was the subject of a manhunt across parts of that state and Illinois in 2015 after he killed another man has been sentenced to life in prison.
Thirty-four-year-old Andrew Obregon pleaded guilty in January to first-degree homicide and other charges in a plea deal with prosecutors under which numerous other charges were dropped. He was sentenced Tuesday.
Obregon was accused of killing 37-year-old Tywon Anderson over a drug deal in September 2015, dumping his body in a cornfield and then eluding capture for weeks before being arrested in Illinois.
