Man sentenced to 10 years for assault in Tre'veon Marshall murder
COLUMBIA - A man originally charged with murder was sentenced to 10 years in jail today for assault.
Joshua Murray was one of three charged in connection to the 2013 murder of Tre'veon Marshall. Nicholas Thomas was found guilty of first-degree murder in June and is serving a life sentence.
In court Monday, a judge sentenced Murray to 10 years for assault in connection to the murder and seven years for an unrelated burglary. His sentences will be served concurrently.
During Thomas' trial in June, Murray told Defense Attorney David Wallis he and Thomas didn't talk about shooting and killing Marshall. Murray said he thought they were only going to jump him.
