He pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge on March 15, 2008, and was sentenced to 276 months in prison. The recent weapons charge alleges he possessed a Pulse model Taser while out on parole in the 2008 case.

Lovett has also been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in the Aug. 2 murder of Ahmaad Nunley in Granite City.

He had already been charged by information, a charging document issued by the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office. Authorities typically take major felonies before a grand jury, which almost always agrees with the original charge.

Lovett is being held on a total of $8 million bail.
