EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – A Madison, Illinois, man was sentenced Wednesday to 75 years in state prison for a 2021 ambush killing and attempted robbery.

In March, a Madison County Circuit Court judge convicted Larry D. Lovett, 42, of first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon.

The Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office said Lovett and another man, William Jenkins, gunned down Andre Hutson on Dec. 7, 2021, in the 1700 block of Wayne Lanter Avenue.

Lovett and Jenkins planned the robbery and ambushed Hutson. They shot him with a 9mm pistol and used a stun gun on him. Hutson was 38.

Jenkins, 46, was convicted of first-degree murder and armed robbery. He was sentenced in August 2022 to 75 years in prison.

Lovett faces another murder charge in a separate case: an August 2021 fatal shooting in Granite City.
