A man convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a one-time high school basketball player was sentenced today to 112 years to life in prison.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White imposed the term on Al Henry Allen Sr., 22, for the June 5, 2010, shooting death of D'andre Blackwell, 18, who played basketball for Valley High School. The shooting took place at a graduation party at an Elk Grove hotel.
Two other defendants who were convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in the same case received eight-year prison terms. They are Brandon Marcel Washington, 24, and Jahmal Vance Dawson, 20.
