    Daylon Richardson to undergo neurophysiology study before sentencing

    By Sharon Wren,


    Daylon Richardson will have to wait to hear his sentence after being found guilty earlier this year in the death of a Knox County deputy in 2022, according to court records.

    Richardson appeared in Henry County Court in Cambridge for a hearing on his objection to a mandatory natural life sentence in prison on Tuesday, June 10. The court ordered that a neurophysiology study and evaluation must be completed before ruling on the objection. Neurophysiology studies and evaluates functions of the nervous system and studies neurological diseases and disorders.

    Court records show Richardson was found guilty of murder in the death of Deputy Nicholas Weist on February 29 of this year. Weist died in 2022 after setting up stop sticks for Richardson, who was running from Galesburg Police when they tried to arrest him on a report of having a gun at a gas station.

    Sentencing is set for August 9.
