BELTON (July 10, 2012)--Two Killeen men who pleaded guilty last week to a 2011 shooting murder have been sentenced state prison time.
Francois Devon Roberson, 28, was sentenced to 45 years and his co-defendant, Deandre Donta Brown, 26, was sentenced to 35 years.
Both men were sentenced in 264th State District Court Tuesday afternoon in connection with the Nov. 13, 2011 shooting death of Marcus Dewayne King, 36, of Killeen.
King died that evening at a local hospital after the shooting in the 2800 block of Schwald Road in Killeen, police said.
Roberson and Brown were arrested two days later, one on an outstanding warrant and the other on a misdemeanor charge.
The murder charge was filed Nov. 18, 2011.
King was supposed to meet two men at the house that Sunday, and police say the men lured King to the home with the intention of robbing him.
A woman drove King to the residence and was waiting outside when he came out of the house after he was shot in the chest.
She was driving him to the hospital when police intercepted the vehicle.
The two men King went to the house to meet both fled on foot onto Fort Hood, police said.
