Peoria man found guilty of murdering girlfriend in 2021
A Peoria man will likely spend decades in prison after he was convicted of the 2021 murder of his girlfriend.
A Peoria County jury took 90 minutes on Wednesday to find 29-year-old Tahir Goodman guilty of killing J'Naysia Hobbs and setting her body on fire in an attempt to cover up the murder.
Hobbs was identified through dental records.
Goodman's sentencing is set for Nov. 16. He faces a 20- to 60-year sentence for murder, and six to 30 years for aggravated arson. The sentences must be served consecutively.
