For the second time, a Moline teenager has been sentenced to a long term in prison for murder. Wednesday afternoon, 19 year old Lamaree Wilson-Neuleib received a total of 62 years - 50 years for murder and 12 years for aggravated battery, to be served consecutively.

Prosecutors say in 2015 Wilson-Neuleib fired shots at two young men sitting in a car in Moline - killing 18 year old Zachary Phillips and seriously wounding 21 year old Erik Roberson.

Later that year (2105), he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 50 years in prison. But a judge later allowed him to withdraw his plea and vacated the sentence after concluding he was not told that 25 years would be added to his sentence because a firearm was involved.

After a second trial last fall, a jury convicted him of murder and aggravated battery.
