Darius Thomas, one of three men responsible for Doe B’s murder, has been sentenced to 85 years in prison Wednesday, the Montgomery Advertiser reports.
Three people were fatally shot during the Dec. 28, 2013 incident at Centennial Hill Bar & Grill nightclub in Montgomery, AL.
Thomas accepted a plea deal nearly four years later last month when pleading guilty to the murders of Kimberle Johnson, Timnarius Hamilton and Doe B.
Trial dates for remaining suspects Jason McWilliams and Taboris Mock have not been set. Both men are out on bond.
Thomas apologized to the mothers of the shooting victims – Barbara Green, Torian Hamilton and Shirley Thomas, respectively – after accepting the plea deal.
The mothers accepted Thomas’ apology but still requested Montgomery County Circuit Judge Greg Griffin to give him the maximum sentence.
Thomas would’ve been sentenced to life without a chance of parole had he not pleaded guilty, Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey told the Advertiser.
Thomas has a chance at parole, but Bailey doesn’t expect to see him released.
“I don’t expect him to ever get out. Not with three murders,” Thomas said. “I expect he’ll die in prison.”
