ADAMS COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) — The last of three men charged in connection with a February 2014 shooting death in Adams County has been convicted of aggravated assault for his role in the crime.
Attorney General Jim Hood said 35-year-old Alan T. Thomas pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated assault in the killing of Terrance Thornburg.
Thomas was sentenced to 15 years in prison with 10 months already served and 14 years, two months suspended. Additionally, Thomas must serve 10 years of post-release supervision, pay $500 to the Mississippi Crime Victim Compensation Fund, and pay all court costs.
Hood said the investigation did not reveal any substantial evidence that Thomas had prior knowledge of any potential criminal activity before arriving at the victim’s residence.
Thomas drove his two co-defendants to the victim’s home, then joined them in entering the home prior to the commission of the attempted robbery and murder.
Maurice Davis, of Natchez was sentenced last week for manslaughter to 15 years in prison with 10 years suspended, leaving five years to serve and 10 years of post-release supervision.
