BRYAN, Texas (AP) A Bryan man who pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery for his role in the slaying of a teen shot in the eye before being robbed of his drugs, gun and money has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Forty-year-old Eugene Lamar Jenkins was sentenced Thursday after entering the plea in July. Co-defendant Clifton Dean Montgomery was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of capital murder in August in the death of 18-year-old Raymond Cavazos, killed instantly by a bullet fired into his eye at his Bryan home in 2011.
Prosecutors say Cavazos was a known drug dealer.
The Bryan-College Station Eagle (http://bit.ly/16xxkEP ) reports Jenkins was originally indicted for capital murder but was convicted of the lesser offense of aggravated robbery as part of a plea agreement.
