Two men convicted of the 2010 shooting death of a Macon man, as well as a prior shooting, have been sentenced to life in prison plus another 45 years.
Jurors deliberated about two hours Thursday before finding Raymon Jamaal Green, 21, of Cochran and Demeko Algernard Wilson, 22, of Gordon guilty of killing 29-year-old Christopher Finney on May 21, 2010.
During the Friday sentencing hearing in Bibb County Superior Court, Green and Wilson also were ordered to serve 20 years on probation if they are released from prison, prosecutor Sandra Matson Matson said.
Because the men were sentenced to life, they aren’t eligible to ask for parole until they’ve served 30 years in prison, she said.
Finney was walking home from the Church’s Chicken on Shurling Drive when Green and Wilson approached him and another man.
Green and Wilson also were convicted of two counts of attempted armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony in connection with their encounter with Finney and another man, who were walking to Finney’s home from the Church’s Chicken on Shuling Drive.
The men also were found guilty of four counts of aggravated assault in connection with shots fired at two women who were driving away from a Chevron station on Shurling Drive near Maynard Street on May 9, Matson said.
