Tylertown man sentenced to life in prison for 2016 murder

Tylertown man sentenced to life in prison for 2016 murder”

AN 18-year-old black teen from Alabama has been sentenced to 65 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit.

Lakeith Smith was convicted of killing his friend A'Donte Washington on Friday - however Washington was in fact killed by a police officer.

Body-cam footage from 23 February 2015, shows officers responding to reports of a burglary in process when the group, including Washington, began firing shots at the police.

He was the last of his accomplices to be tried.

Muttiah meted out the sentences on mechanic S. Theventhiran, 38, and personal driver M. Nagan Kumar, 40, after they changed their plea to guilty to an amended charge.

Jennifer Holton, representing Smith told the court: "The officer shot A'Donte, not Lakeith Smith".

In a statement, police said: "Officers in Portsmouth spotted the auto and after running it through the system discovered the vehicle, along with the item found inside, was stolen".

As a result, Wu, Ho and Lan were sentenced, respectively, to 15 years and four months in jail, with five years' deprivation of political rights; 17 years and 10 months in jail, with six years' deprivation of political rights; and six years and two months in jail, with two years' deprivation of political rights. He did not participate in the act that caused the death of A'Donte.

The teenager was reported to smile and laugh when he was given the sentences.

"We are very pleased with this sentence".

Ronal Norwood, 63, of Temple is headed to prison after pleading guilty earlier this year to failure to stop and render aid in connection with a hit-and-run in November 2016 that killed a 13-year-old boy.

Three other defendants have all entered guilty pleas and are awaiting sentencing.
