DOVER, Del.- A 20-year-old Camden, Del. man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty for his role in a Dover murder.

Prosecutors with the Delaware Department of Justice said that in May 2018, Eugene Riley, along with Ahmir Bailey, 21, of Lincoln, got into an argument with 20-year-old Jameir Vann-Robinson, of Smyrna, as Vann-Robinson and a friend left a house party on Mitscher Road.

Prosecutors said the argument led to Riley and Bailey both firing several shots at Vann-Robinson, with Bailey fatally striking him in the back.

Riley pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was immediately sentenced by a Superior Court judge to 15 years in prison, followed by work release and probation.

Bailey was convicted by a jury in October of 2018 of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, shoplifting and third-degree conspiracy. A Superior Court judge also found Bailey guilty of Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited and Possession of Ammunition by a Person Prohibited.

Bailey faces mandatory life in prison when sentenced in January of next year, according to prosecutors.
