A Madison County judge has sentenced a former Washington Park man to 60 years in prison for chasing down his girlfriend in a truck.
At the time of the murder, Dunnavant-Polach was walking along Illinois 111 and trying to evade Mayor, who was driving a pickup.
A witness was driving a tractor-trailer nearby when he saw Dunnavant-Polach in distress and pulled over to help her. When she tried to jump into the semi, she was hit by Mayor’s pickup.
The former marine testified that he pulled the microphone wire off his CB radio and used it to tie a tourniquet on Dunnavant-Polach’s severed leg after she’d been struck.
Mayor, 60, was found guilty of first-degree murder for intentionally striking Lisa Dunnavant-Polach, 46, with his pickup along a highway in Pontoon Beach on Feb. 21.
According to Madison County State’s Attorney Thomas Haine, the all-female jury took just 40 minutes to return from deliberation with a verdict.
He was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Tuesday.
