Darius Thomas, one of three men allegedly responsible for Montgomery nightclub shooting that claimed three lives, was sentenced to 85 years in prison Wednesday.
Thomas accepted a plea deal in December, pleading guilty to the murders of Kimberle Johnson, Timnarius Hamilton and local rapper Glenn “Doe B” Thomas, who had by then signed on to Atlanta-based rapper T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records.
The shooting took place at Centennial Hill Bar and Grill on Dec. 28, 2013. The club had reopened in 2013 after several were injured in a Dec. 2012 shooting at the same location, then operating as the Rose Supper Club. Thomas was the first of the three men arrested in connection to the shooting to stand trial. Trial dates for Jason McWilliams and Taboris Mock, the other two alleged shooters, have not been set. Both are out on bond.
