A man will serve seven years in prison for his part in a drug-related armed robbery that left a Warner Robins man dead.
Marte Vesean Polk, 21, pleaded guilty in Houston County Superior Court on Monday to one count of robbery by force in the shooting death of 38-year-old Keith Moses, District Attorney George Hartwig said. Other charges were dropped as part of the plea agreement.
Polk will serve five years on probation after his prison term, Hartwig said.
Also Monday, jury selection was underway for Tyrone Lamark Davis, 25, who also is charged in Moses’ death.
Never miss a local story.
Last week, Bobby Jermel Releford, 25, was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to murder in the killing.
Assistant District Attorney Greg Winters said at Releford’s court hearing that Polk drove Davis and Releford to Moses’ Crestwood Terrace home the evening of Aug. 2, 2012. Polk told police that Releford and Davis went inside as he waited in the car. Multiple shots were fired.
After managing to flee to a neighbor’s yard to bang on the door, Moses collapsed and died the next morning at The Medical Center of Central Georgia.
