Justice has been served in the Ebony Morgan case.
23 year old Kenneth Kelley. Jr pled guilty to second degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony in the July 2 murder of Morgan in Lynchburg, VA.
Kelley fled the Lynchburg area and headed to Baltimore after fatally shooting Morgan, and was found at his mother’s house a few days later.
He accepted a plea deal, and was sentenced to 40 years for the murder and 3 years fo the firearm charge. 23 years of the sentence was suspended by the judge for good behavior.
According to Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney Bethany Harrison, Kelley will be spending the next 20 years in state prison for the crime.
Morgan’s mother told a local news station that the sentence gives her some closure and she can sleep at night.
And another on of the people who took one of our sister’s lives will be going to jail for it, even if it isn’t as long as we as a community would like it to happen.
