Authorities tracked Whiteside down in Chicago and arrested him for the June 2015 shooting death of Cedric Gilmer at a motel at 41st and Memorial.

Court records show charges were dismissed against two others.

Another man, Claude Calvin, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the case earlier this year.
