A 16-year-old accused of shooting and killing a Sierra Vista High School student was sentenced today to spend eight to 20 years in prison.
District Judge Valerie Adair sentenced Raymond Roseby for slaying 15-year-old Demontre Carroll in October 2007.
"I never meant for this to happen," said Roseby, who had pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter with a deadly weapon.
Demontre was a key witness in a California gang case and was killed 16 days before he was set to testify against 14 gang members.
At the time of the slaying, California authorities believed Demontre’s slaying was connected to his testifying in that case. However, Las Vegas authorities said his killing wasn’t related to the California case.
