Man sentenced to 7-years for home invasion

URBANA -- A Rantoul man was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to a class x felony of home invasion with injury. Officials say 23-year old Travis Burke entered an apartment in the 1300-block of McCullough Drive on February 24 and robbed a resident of $300.

Authorities say another suspect, 20-year old Timothy Lowe, of St. Joseph, was also involved in the robbery and held the victim while Burke punched him. The pair was arrested within a few hours since the victim knew the suspects.

A charge of armed home invasion against Burke was dismissed. Lowe is due in court next month.
