A 17-year-old Toledoan charged in the shooting death of another teen entered an Alford plea on reduced charges today in Lucas County Common Pleas Court.
Davion Wilson of 1260 Buckingham St., was then found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault with a gun specification and sentenced to 15 years in prison by Judge Linda Jennings.
The charges stemmed from the Dec. 30, 2011 shooting death of Deadrick Rocker, 17, and the wounding of a 16-year-old boy whose name was not released because he was a witness in the case.
Wilson, who had been certified to stand trial as an adult, was to have gone on trial today.
