Harvey pleaded guilty to stealing Aurora’s car

A Harvey man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison in connection with a carjacking and shooting that left an Aurora woman permanently paralyzed in 2021.

27-year-old Edward J. McGee agreed to prison time in connection with his guilty plea to aggravated carjacking, Kane County court records show.

McGee was one of four people who police say pulled over a man in DeKalb County in 2021 and then stopped in Aurora looking for another car. Meanwhile, the woman had just dropped her two sons off at her parents’ house and was running some errands when she stopped to eat at a Wendy’s in Aurora around 4 p.m. on Jan. 16, family friends The Beacon-News previously reported.

She was listening to an audiobook while eating in the parking lot of a restaurant in the 1200 block of North Orchard Road when a Ford Escape pulled up and at least two men surrounded her SUV, police said earlier.

A woman was pushed through the center console, suffered a spinal injury and was forcibly dragged from her vehicle when four men, including McGee, stole her car, police said.

A Harvey teenager is accused of firing a gun at a woman, striking her in the back. She was left lying in the parking lot with a shattered vertebra, leaving her paralyzed, and the bullet still lodged in her spinal cord.

Shortly thereafter, her car was used in a carjacking in Lansing and was found Jan. 20 in Harvey with multiple bullet holes inside and outside, officials said.

The teenager was later charged as an adult, along with Darrell Frazier of Lansing. Both have ongoing cases. A fourth carjacking suspect was shot and killed during a carjacking in Lansing later that month, officials said.

McGee will have to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole, court records show. He was credited with 550 days served in the Kane County Jail.
