  • Another person gets 10 years in prison for the death of Quincy Suggs in 2014, Channel 2 reported.

Three people were sentenced Wednesday for their roles in the death of a 24-year-old man in Clayton County, with family members of the victim turning out to share their thoughts.

Frederick Marsalia Rosenau and Lavarr Rasheed Pierce  were sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing Quincy Suggs at a Jonesboro home in September 2014, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Khadijah Briana Jenkins got a 10-year prison term for her role in the incident, Channel 2 reported.

They were convicted in November.

According to testimony, they used a woman gang member to lure Suggs to a home on Redland Drive in 2014. Authorities said they shot the victim and burned his body in a Clayton County house.

“I do forgive them, but I think they need to have time to think about what they did,” said Tanya Johnson, Suggs’ aunt.
