After nearly 11 years of waiting, the family of Brian Carrick finally has a court date during which his killer will be sentenced.
Mario Casciaro, 30, faces 20 to 60 years in prison when sentenced Nov. 14 for the murder of Carrick, who was last seen in December 2002 at a Johnsburg grocery store owned by Casciaro's family.
Casciaro has been held without bond since a jury convicted him of first-degree murder in February 2013.
Defense attorney Brian Telander argued for a new trial, but McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather denied the move this week, according to court records.
Prosecutors argued that Carrick, whose body has not been found, was killed over a drug debt to Casciaro.
Casciaro's first murder trial ended with a hung jury in early 2012.
