CHICAGO (CBS) — A suburban man who pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a 2010 triple murder in Darien, was sentenced to 75 years in prison Monday.


Jacob Nodarse, 26, broke into a living room window at the home of Jeffrey and Lori Kramer and shot the Kramers and their 20-year-old son, Michael.

On Monday, prosecutors asked that Nodarse be sentenced to more than 50 years in prison so that he won’t get out until he’s at least 75-years-old.

Judge Daniel Guerin then handed down the 75-year term.

Nodarse, of Countryside, committed the murders at the direction Johnny Borizov, of Willow Springs, who was involved in a custody dispute with the Kramers’ daughter, Angela.

Angela Kramer avoided being shot by hiding in a closet. Another Kramer son, Anthony, and Michael Kramer’s girlfriend escaped through windows.

Borizov did not accompany Nodarse to the Kramer home, but he was convicted of murder, solicitation to commit murder, conspiracy to commit murder and home invasion.

Borizov was sentenced last month to life in prison.

“You have taken your last breath of freedom’s air,” Judge Daniel Guerin said as he ordered Borizov to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
