WTVO/WQRF - Justice finally comes for the family of Steven Agee II.
Chaz Thrailkill, 21, initially pled not guilty, but changed his mind during a hearing Tuesday. As part of a plea deal, he'll spend the next 30 years in prison; 25 years for murder and five years for attempted aggravated discharge of a firearm.
Thrailkill's trial was set to begin later this month.
The murder happened in 2011. Thrailkill murdered Agee after an argument at an off-campus party. Thrailkill was not a student at NIU.
