Thrailkill was sentenced to 25 years in prison for first-degree murder and another five years for attempted aggravated discharge of a firearm. He could have faced a 45-year-sentence if he'd been convicted during a trial.

Authorities say Thrailkill killed the Park Forest man during an argument at an off-campus party in DeKalb. Thrailkill wasn't an NIU student, but was visiting a friend.
