Joliet man found guilty of fatal shooting during Aurora drug buy turned robbery

A Joliet man has been convicted of shooting and killing an Aurora man during a drug deal turned armed robbery and murder, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Dimitri Green-Hosey, 21, of the 1200 block of Fairchild Avenue, was convicted late Wednesday by a Kane County jury of first-degree murder and armed robbery in the January 2014 killing of 20-year-old Arin Williams of Aurora, the news release stated. The jury also found that Green-Hosey fired a gun in committing the crime.

The jury deliberated about six hours.

Kane County prosecutors presented evidence that at about 7:30 p.m. Jan. 13, 2014, Green-Hosey and his brother, co-defendant Jaquan Green-Hosey, met with Williams at a business in the 800 block of North Lake Street in Aurora. The brothers had arranged to buy an ounce of marijuana from Williams, according to the news release, but instead decided to rob Williams of the drugs.

During the meeting, Jaquan Green-Hosey grabbed the marijuana and began to run, the news release stated, and Dimitri Green-Hosey shot Williams in the back of the head, killing him.

The brothers then fled to the east and threw the gun in the Fox River, according to the news release.

Jaquan Green-Hosey, 22, also of the 1200 block of Fairchild Avenue in Joliet, pleaded guilty Feb. 26 to first-degree murder, the news release stated. He awaits sentencing.

Judge Donald M. Tegeler Jr. set Dimitri Green-Hosey’s next court appearance for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 4, when motions and sentencing will take place.
