URBANA — A Champaign man with a previous felony conviction found in possession of a gun is headed to prison for four years.

Reginald Logan, 31, whose last known address is in the 300 block of Kenwood Road, pleaded guilty Monday to possession of a weapon by a felon.

He had to be sentenced to prison for that offense because of his prior conviction from 2016 for conspiracy to dismember a human body. Logan was one of six men who worked together to dismember the body of a woman who died of a heroin overdose at a Champaign home. Her remains were found in Clinton Lake in DeWitt County.

Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Taylor said a Champaign County Street Crimes Task Force officer had obtained a search warrant for his apartment on Kenwood and found a 9 mm gun on Oct. 6, 2022.

In exchange for his guilty plea to the weapons charge, other drug-related charges were dismissed.
