That sentence was handed down for 28-year-old  LeDarron Demarion Carter. He is a second-felony offender and must serve his sentence without the benefit of probation or suspension.
Carter was found guilty during a trial back in September. He was convicted of killing 25-year-old Deverous Holden back in June of 2019 on Stoner Avenue. Holden had been shot in the upper body and was found lying in the street at Stoner and Busby.
Assistant District Attorneys William J. Edwards and Mekisha Smith Creal prosecuted the case, while Ben Langford defended Carter.
