A Northeast Washington man was sentenced to 14 years in prison Tuesday for the 2007 slaying of another man in Southwest D.C.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz sentenced James Paylor, 20, after Paylor pleaded guilty in February to voluntary manslaughter while armed in the Nov. 30, 2007, shooting death of Darrell Shepperd, 24.
Shepperd was shot as he walking from a store in the 1500 block of First Street SW, authorities said. According to court charging documents, a video of the shooting was captured by D.C. police surveillance cameras.
Based on the video, prosecutors theorized that the shooting was a result of a robbery.
