Man Sentenced for Spring Murder

Devaughn Griffin is facing up to 70 years in prison for the death of Jer'ray Moore. He was sentenced on Tuesday.

Griffin entered a plea of guilty to Second Degree Murder in November for the death last April. He was initially charged with First Degree Murder.

He was sentenced to a term of up to 50 years on the murder charge and up to 20 years on a weapons charge with those penalties to be served consecutively. He will be eligible for parole in 32 ½ years.

Jer’ray Moore, 23, was shot to death April 6 near North 83rd Street and Underwood, in an apartment she shared with Griffin’s ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutors claimed that Griffin shot Moore once in the stomach and then convinced witnesses to lie about what happened.

LaMichael Fewell was also named as a suspect in the case but charges against him have been dropped.
