Man Sentenced To 9 Decades For Fraternity House Slaying
A judge has sentenced a gunman to 90 years to life in prison in a northeast Ohio fraternity house shooting that left one dead and 11 others wounded.
The judge imposed the sentence Thursday on 20-year-old Jamelle Jackson of Youngstown on his convictions for murder, felonious assault and firing a gun into a house.
Jackson's attorney says his client plans to appeal the conviction.
A co-defendant was sentenced Thursday to 10 years on involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault charges. Another co-defendant was sentenced earlier to 92 years to life in prison for murder.
The Feb. 6, 2011, shooting near Youngstown State University killed 25-year-old student Jamail Johnson.
According to The (Youngstown) Vindicator, the victim's mother told the judge she often wishes the ordeal was a dream.
