51 years for D.C. man in killing
A 21-year-old District man was sentenced to 51 years in prison for luring a man into an outdoor craps game, slipping off to try to disguise himself and returning to kill and try to rob the man, officials said yesterday.
Jervon L. Herbin had earlier been convicted by a jury for his role in the slaying of Kevin Turner, 29, in the 1100 block of Abbey Place NE two years ago.
According to prosecutors, Herbin lured Turner into the dice game shortly after midnight. Herbrin and another man then went to Herbin's home, about a block away.
They armed themselves with a revolver, attempted to disguise themselves, and crept back to the craps game using parked cars as cover, according to prosecutors.
They jumped out, prompting the other players to flee, and headed straight for Turner, who was kneeling on the ground by himself, prosecutors said.
"They demanded money, and then pushed, beat and kicked him," prosecutors said in a statement. "While Turner was still on the ground, they shot him repeatedly, firing five shots into his body. One bullet hit him in the heart, and he collapsed immediately."
