The man who arranged a robbery that led to the murder of 37-year-old Matthew Shevlin was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Friday.
As part of a plea agreement, Eugene Sherman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
With Jennings and Harvey both armed, the trio broke into the condominium. Jennings broke into the front door of the building and while Sherman waited nearby Jennings and Herman went into the building.
When they attempted to break into Shevlin’s unit, Shevlin fled out of the front door and began screaming for help. Jennings chased Shevlin and there was a struggle, in which Shevlin was shot multiple times.
Sherman is now the second man sentenced in Shevlin’s murder. As part of his plea agreement, Jennings pleaded guilty to second-degree murder while armed in December 2016 and is now serving a 24 year sentence.
Harvey’s case is still pending.
Sherman is expected to serve five years on probation after his sentence is completed.
