A 20-year-old Danville man has been sentenced to 65 years in prison for a Fourth of July shooting that killed a Champaign woman last year. Treshaun Jake was sentenced for the first-degree murder of 20-year-old Desirae Austin in 2012. Prosecutors say Austin was hit in the chest by one of dozens of rounds that were intended for two brothers. Jake is the second person to be sentenced for the shooting. Co-defendant Anthony Meads was sentenced to 50 years in prison in August after being convicted. Both men maintain their innocence.
