A Mokena man convicted of murder will spend less time in prison than he did on the street following the 2001 killing.
Marcus Jones, 32, took a 10-year prison sentence for killing 20-year-old Terrance Chandler in May 2001. Chandler was found dead outside the Joliet city limits on Patterson Road.
Jones was arrested and charged with Chandler's murder in March 2012.
