LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – More than two years after the death of Anthony Kye, another person tied to his murder is going to prison.

A judge Wednesday sentenced Jamon Hampton to a minimum of 35 years and four months in prison for the June 26, 2013 crime.

Hampton, who is now 20 years old, could spend up to 75 years and four months behind bars for his crimes, which included second degree murder, felony firearm, assault with intent to commit murder and carrying a weapon with unlawful intent.

Police say Kye was standing with his fiancée in front of their home on North Pine Street when he was shot and killed.

Three others were also charged in the crime, including Valentino Stewart, who has already been sentenced.

Mark Williams previously pleaded guilty to second degree murder for his involvement as the driver, and Jarvis Askew was previously charged with being an accessory to the felony.
