WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A 25-year-old man faces a minimum of 24 years in prison after a jury convicted him of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a community mentor.
The jury on Wednesday convicted D'Andre "Fresh" Rogers. He will be sentenced in July and could face a life sentence for the January 2009 shooting of 41-year-old Derrick Hoey in Wilmington.
During the trial, a defense attorney said there were no witnesses who said they saw Rogers fire the shots.
Deputy Attorney General John W. Downs says it was a senseless crime that caused tragedy for Hoey and his family.
