A 29-year-old man faces up to 14 years in prison for a crash that killed Matthew Ranken, 11, of Sycamore, in February 2013 in Virgil Township. A judge heard testimony Thursday at a sentencing for Benjamin J. Black, of Sycamore, who pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI because he had heroin in his system when he caused a crash that killed the boy. The sentence will be announced next Wednesday.
