In which case I’d have believe they had witness testimony that corroborated his story in what led up to the altercation that led to the shooting death of Ibushio Sealey back in august of 2013- Read original Story Here
Prosecutor’s say the conflict between the two began when weeks prior to the incident Lamont Jones (Photo’d above) purchased a cigarette from his neighbor and sadly now victim, 35 Year Old Ibushio Sealey.
Sealey allowed Jones to purchase the cigarette with the intent of him paying it back sooner than later.
Tension’s boiled as days past and Jones had yet to make good on his debt with Sealey. There dispute took a turn for the worst that night when Lamont Jones shot Ibushio five times inside his Andrews Avenue apartment building; Again all this over .40 cents if I were friends of these people I would have ended the situation so long ago it wouldn’t even been an issue. You let someone have .40 cents when your that old. It’s insane what people will kill for.
After a speedy trial Lamont Jones was found guilty of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second degree murder. He rightfully faces up to 15 years on the weapons charge and 25 years on the murder charge. Sentencing for Jones will be held on May 10th, 2016.
