WEST CHICAGO – A Geneva man was sentenced to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections Oct. 25 after pleading guilty to stabbing a man last July in West Chicago, according to the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.

Logan Baker, 19, was charged with aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony, after stabbing the man in the side of his torso, said Paul Darrah, spokesman for the State's Attorney's Office.

Baker is eligible to attend boot camp instead of serving his sentence in prison, but that decision ultimately will be made by the Illinois Department of Corrections, Darrah said.

After the stabbing took place July 22 in the 300 block of South Wilson Street in West Chicago, Baker faced other charges – including one count of mob action, another count of aggravated battery, one count of unlawful use of weapon and one count of aggravated assault – but they were dismissed as part of the plea agreement, Darrah said.

Two other men also were allegedly part of the stabbing.

Mario Hightower, of Wayne, was charged with one count of mob action, one count of unlawful use of weapon and one count of aggravated battery, Darrah said. Hightower is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 1.

Christopher Kinney, 19, of West Chicago, was charged with one count of mob action and one count of aggravated battery, Darrah said. He is expected to appear in court Oct. 29.
