Peoria man takes plea deal; sentenced to 20 years for botched fatal robbery

PEORIA — A Peoria man was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for his part in a 2012 murder that resulted from a botched robbery.

Robert C. Nunn, Jr. now 23, pleaded guilty in Peoria County Circuit Court to second-degree murder as part of a deal that saw a first-degree murder charge dropped, said his attorney William Loeffel.

But the appellate judges found a judge here improperly barred a Facebook conversation at the December 2012 trial. The case was sent back to Peoria County last summer.

No one disputed Nunn killed Drummond. At issue was whether Nunn shot in self-defense or as the result of a

Sheriff: Botched robbery led to man’s death

Deputies now say a man stole guns from his girlfriend’s Gastonia home and then pretended to sell them in an attempt to rob people of their money.

The man who answered the door at his Painter Lane residence outside of Lincolnton around 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 6, believed Marion Palmer Yarborough and anther man were there to sell him weapons, Lincoln County Sheriff David Carpenter said. But after he showed interest in paying, the resident realized this was not a typical transaction.

“It was determined to be a robbery by the people that came from Gastonia,” Carpenter said. “Once they got there they attempted to rob the folks of the money they were going to pay for the weapons.”

The Gastonia men had the male resident drop to the floor at gunpoint, when a woman emerged from a back bedroom firing her handgun.
