Sentenced For Attempted Murder & Home Invasion

Daniel J. Tupou

A Greenville man has been sentenced to prison in a 2018 attempted murder and home invasion case that occurred in Greenville,

On September 4, Daniel Tupou pled guilty, but mentally ill, to two charges of attempted murder and one count of home invasion, in regard to an incident that resulted in three Greenville women being stabbed by the defendant. The state dismissed a charge of felony aggravated battery by use of a deadly weapon.

A sentencing hearing was held in court earlier this month and Associate Judge Ronald Slemer sentenced Tupou to 18 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on each charge. The terms will be served concurrently.

The incidents occurred September 26, 2018 at homes along West Harris Avenue in Greenville. Two of the females were stabbed in the back by Tupou and another was stabbed in the stomach.

The victims survived.

Tupou has been incarcerated since the incidents occurred and he will receive credit for time served. By law, he must serve 85 percent of the prison sentence handed down to him by Judge Slemer.

Bond County State’s Attorney Dora Mann said the defendant presented a six-page statement during the sentencing, apologizing to the victims and the people of Greenville and Bond County for his actions. Mann said while he is state prison, Tupou will be able to receive mental health treatment.
