PEKIN, IL — An Illinois woman accused of murdering her boyfriend’s 4-year-old son was given 75 years in prison.

Lesli Jett was portrayed as a selfish drug addict who disliked being at Tate Thurman’s East Peoria home.  When the boy died in 2020, he had numerous bruises and abrasions.  Jeremy Thurman, the boy’s father, claims Jett appeared loving but was hiding “malicious behavior.”

Jett was the mother of a 2-year-old child.
