DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — One of five suspects in the shooting death of a Davenport man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Twenty-year-old Darell Allen Williams Jr., of East Moline, Illinois, was sentenced Friday for his role in the robbery and shooting death of Brady Tumlinson, whose girlfriend was seriously injured in the September 2017 attack.

The Quad-City Times reported Williams pleaded guilty in July to first-degree burglary. As part of the plea deal , charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony were dropped.

Two other suspects were sentenced to life in prison without parole and a third was sentenced to up to 35 years in prison.

The fifth suspect is awaiting a verdict after having a bench trial in July.
