Man gets 140 years in music producer killing

By Ruben Castaneda
Washington Post editors

A Prince George's County judge on Tuesday sentenced a Landover man to 140 years in prison for murdering a well-known music producer more than four years ago and for targeting a prosecution witness.

Circuit Court Judge C. Philip Nichols Jr. imposed the sentence on Jamaal G. Alexis, 24.

In October, a Circuit Court jury convicted Alexis of second-degree murder and seven other offenses in the slaying of Raymond Brown, who was also known as Scottie Beats.

Alexis was stealing Brown's car when the victim confronted him, according to trial testimony. Alexis fired a single shot into Brown's torso.

In meting out the sentence, Nichols deviated from state sentencing guidelines, which called for a term of 20 to 35 years. "In your wake, three men are dead," Nichols told Alexis as he announced his sentence. "Some things in life can't be fixed or forgiven."

Prosecutors alleged that Alexis arranged to have state witness Bobby J. Ennels killed. Ennels and another man, Anthony Cash, were fatally shot in October 2008. Alexis was acquitted of conspiring to murder Ennels, but convicted of soliciting his younger brother, Rashadd Alexis, to retaliate against Ennels.

Rashadd Alexis is scheduled to go on trial in March in the slayings of Ennels and Cashl.

Does this mean he has a chance for parole in like 75 years?

That is GREAT news for the families of three men whose lives were taken, directly or indirectly because of this man. I hope the same justice is served for the other Alexis monster.
