A little more than two years after Jarvis Ronte West was shot to death inside an east Macon apartment, a man charged with the slaying pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
Shavez Christian Flewellen, 25, was sentenced to 20 years — 17 to serve in prison — according to a Thursday release from the Bibb County District Attorney’s Office.
West, 23, was shot multiple times after an argument with Flewellen at Pine Ridge Apartments on Clinton Road the evening of Dec. 17, 2015.
West had a child with a woman Flewellen had recently started dating.

Two years before the shooting, Flewellen had been sentenced as a first offender after pleading guilty to having a gun with a scratched-off serial number.
West is buried at Macon Memorial Park, according to his obituary.
