A homeless man accused committing a brutal murder late last year has copped a plea.
Adam Brown-Windle, 24, was accused of robbing, stabbing, and partially dismembering Dylan Propst, another homeless man, on December 11, 2013. Propst's body was found stashed in a vacant home on West Prospect in Peoria's East Bluff neighborhood. Brown-Windle reportedly tracked Propst down after he spotted him with cash at a local shelter.
Brown-Windle pleaded guilty to murder this week in exchange for prosecutors dropping armed robbery and dismemberment charges. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
Jay Conway, 21, accused of taking part in the incident, is still awaiting trial.
