(AP) — An Omaha man convicted of killing a man last spring has been sentenced to decades in prison.
Douglas County District Judge J. Russell Derr sentenced 22-year-old Devaughn Griffin on Tuesday to 60 to 70 years in prison. He must serve 32½ years in prison before being eligible for parole.
Griffin shot and killed Jer’ray Moore on April 6 at an apartment complex in central Omaha. Prosecutors say Griffin was angry because Moore beat up Griffin’s girlfriend’s sister.
Moore’s mother, Tricia Moore, denied her son beat the woman.
Another man, LaMichael Fewell, also was arrested in the killing, but those charges were later dropped.
