Peoria man sentenced to 80 years in 'bodyless murder' case
A Peoria man was sentenced Thursday to the maximum 80-year prison term in a murder case.
Allen Schimmelpfennig, 30, was convicted of killing Gabriel Cook in 2021.
Cook's body was never found. Schimmelpfennig was found guilty on circumstantial evidence, including a large pool of dried blood found in his storage locker.
The sentence includes 75 years for first-degree murder and five years for concealing a homicidal death.
