LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 16-year-old was sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison for killing a high school sophomore who moved to Las Vegas while waiting to testify as a witness in California gang trial.
Raymond Roseby told a judge Thursday he didn't mean to kill 15-year-old Demontre Carroll, who was shot in the back in front of his southwest Las Vegas home in October 2007.
Roseby pleaded guilty Oct. 2 to voluntary manslaughter with a deadly weapon in a plea deal that avoided trial.
A Riverside County, Calif., prosecutor, Deena Bennett, calls it suspicious that Carroll was killed 16 days before he was due to
testify in a trial involving 14 gang members.
Authorities say Carroll witnessed a February 2007 shooting in
Banning, Calif., that left two gang members dead.
