Judge Tim Chambers handed down the life sentence for 35-year-old Quinton Moore. Moore was recently convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 42-year-old Clarence D. Allen. Under the sentence, Moore won’t be eligible for parole for 51 ½ years.
Allen was shot multiple times in a home in the 1700 block of East 30th. Moore fled the scene of the shooting, but was taken into custody. Under his Miranda rights, Moore admitted to the shooting. Moore had been Allen’s on-again-off-again roommate.
