Since my momma is in prison, Can I share a cell with her? Man gets 15 years in attack by his mother that left teen dead in Elgin

PHOTO: Timera Branch, left, killed John Keyes III, right, of Elgin, Illinois. Branch, 36, formerly of Streamwood, is serving a 34-year prison sentence following her 2011 conviction on murder charges.

A man whose mother is already in prison for running down an Elgin teenager with her car pleaded guilty to today to participating in the fatal attack.

Lacorbek Benion, who was 16 at the time of the crime, received a 15-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in connection with the death of John W. Keyes III of Elgin. In exchange for Benion’s plea, prosecutors dropped a count of first-degree murder.

Benion’s mother, Timera Branch, was found guilty of pinning Keyes, 17, against a wall with her car in November 2009, the night after Keyes and her son had gotten into a fight at a high school party.

Authorities have said that, moments after Branch struck Keyes with her car, Benion exited a second car and swung at Keyes with a baseball bat, though authorities said the autopsy of Keyes did not show any signs of being hit with a bat.

Branch, 36, formerly of Streamwood, is serving a 34-year prison sentence following her 2011 conviction on murder charges.

According to testimony at her trial, Branch was angry after learning that Keyes had punched her son after they fought over a girl. It was the only blow in the fight, but Benion required two stitches under an eye to close a cut.

Remember those little license plates you would get for you bike or push car with names like Tom, Bill, Cindy and Betty. Where do these black kids get their little license plates for their bikes? I once had a black guy that worked for me that named his kids after towns in Wisconsin Waukesha, Kenosha and Racine.
