A Lemont man convicted of a 2011 road rage killing was sentenced to 18 years in prison.
Christopher Yeoman, 41, will only have to serve half the 18 years with day-for-day credit.
Yeoman was found guilty of second-degree murder, aggravated battery of a senior citizen and aggravated battery in connection with the death of 64-year-old Frank Egas.
Egas was killed at the culmination of an escalating road rage incident that began near the intersection of New Avenue and 135th Street. Yeoman, who was driving with his wife and three children, honked at Egas when he took too long making a left at a green arrow.
The men got out of their vehicles after stopping for a light at Route 53 and Yeoman punched Egas, sending him to the pavement. Egas died in a Lake County nursing home three months later.
Yeoman's attorney, Clifford Johnson, argued for a new trial prior to sentencing. Among other things, Johnson claimed Egas, a veteran of the Vietnam War, suffered from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder.
