Johnson is the boyfriend of Mitchell’s former caregiver, Vishawn Mills who appears in court next month. Johnson must serve 100 percent of the sentence.

During his sentencing hearing, Johnson apologized to the victim’s family. Mitchell was shot five times , dragged to a burn pit and lit on fire.

Mitchell’s charred remains were later found in the Mackinaw River in both McLean and Woodford Counties.

This was his care-giver.
This was his ‘caregiver’.
