Anthony Wade was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of Aubrey Dansbury, and his uncle was sentenced for helping.
Wade pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for shooting Dansbury.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Dansbury and Wade were arguing inside an apartment when the fight turned physical, and Wade called his uncle. The two men took the fight outside, when Wade’s uncle, Bailey, showed up and provided his nephew with a gun. Wade initially fired at Dansbury until his gun jammed, when his uncle helped unjam it. Wade then fatally shot Dansbury while he tried to seek cover in Bailey’s car.
The two men left in Bailey’s car, leaving Dansbury on the sidewalk. Dansbury died about a week later from his injuries.
Bailey will serve 13 years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
