Effingham, Il (Via Harrisburg, Il) – It’s 20 years in prison for a southern Illinois doctor convicted of a jailhouse plot to kidnap the prosecutor in his pending murder case.
A judge yesterday sentenced Brian Burns to two decades behind bars.
Investigators say Burns concocted a plan to kidnap former Saline County state’s attorney, Mike Henshaw, as a way to avoid trial for the murder of his wife.
That trial is still pending.
Burns is due in court in March for his next hearing on murder charges.
