D.C. man gets 21 years in beating death

By Mike McPhate

A Washington man has been sentenced to 21 years in prison after admitting that he beat a man to death in a Southeast D.C. parking lot.

Davon Ellis, 20, and two other men attacked Gerard Monk during a money dispute in the1300 block of Barnaby Terrace SE on the morning of April 18, 2009. Ellis, who claimed that the victim had refused to repay a debt, continued to punch and stomp Monk's head and upper body, even after victim fell limp to the ground and the other men stopped attacking.

Ellis then rifled though Monk’s pockets and fled the scene. Monk died shortly later of his injuries.

Ellis pleaded guilty to the killing on January 15.

I'm sure he is asking himself was it worth it, but he's probably wondering if the victim has any relatives that are locked up in the system, that is waiting to deal the same punishment and fate as he did.

This happens in New York City all the time. History has proven that people are violent and "savage".
