CHICAGO (AP) – A judge has sentenced a suburban Chicago man to 62.5 years in prison for the 2017 slaying and dismemberment of his mother whose partial remains were found in a lagoon.
Sixty-year-old Brian Peck was convicted in February of first-degree murder, dismembering a human body and concealing a homicide death.
Authorities said he stomped on Gail Peck’s head. Authorities said Brian Peck then placed some of her remains into plastic garbage bags and threw them in to Lake Michigan.
Cook County Judge Joseph Cataldo said Monday that Peck murdering his mother was disturbing enough, but more egregious was “listening to him testify how he sawed her into pieces.”
