MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

The Jackson County state's attorney says a Murphysboro man has pleaded guilty to residential burglary and sentenced to serve time in prison.

Deandrelin D. Davis, 23, of Murphysboro was convicted in Jackson County Circuit Court of residential burglary and was sentenced to serve 9 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, according to State's Attorney Michael Carr.

Davis will serve a two year period of mandatory supervised release upon his release from prison.

He was accused of breaking into a home and stealing a woman's purse.

Davis' shoes and the impressions recovered from the scene were transferred to the Metro-East Forensic Science Centre.

Forensics made a positive identification that his shoe created the impression left in the victim's home.

The investigation was conducted by the Murphysboro Police Department and the Metro-East Forensic Science Center.

Assistant State's Attorney Casey Bloodworth prosecuted this case.
