July 31, 2019

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — One of six men accused in a 2016 shooting death in North Carolina has pleaded guilty in the case.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reports Jermauciyae Rysuan Abram of Durham pleaded guilty in Orange County Superior Court on Wednesday to being an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. Judge Carl Fox sentenced Abram to between 58 months to 82 months in prison.

Abram was charged in the murder of Tevin Kendrick, who was found shot 23 times in a community center parking lot on Jan. 18, 2016.

The other five men are all serving time for their roles in the shooting. One of them, Andre Lamar Dixon, was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury in November 2018 and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
