One of three men allegedly involved in the 2013 murder of rising rapper Glenn "Doe B" Thomas has been sentenced 85 years in prison.

Darius Thomas, 29, was sentenced to 85 years in prison on Wednesday (January 10) in the Centennial Hill shooting of the rapper, as reported by WSFA. The decision came after he pleaded guilty to three counts of murder last month.

Fans and family members at Doe B.'s funeral.

Doe B, who was signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle Records, was shot and killed on December 28, 2013 inside the inside the Centennial Hill Bar & Grill, formerly known as Rose Supper Club, in his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. He was one of three victims killed during the senseless shooting, including Troy University student Kimberle Johnson, 21, and Tim Hamilton, 20.

Barbara Greene, Johnson's mother, remembers her 21-year-old daughter as "a joy to raise," and thanks Meek Mill for his support.

Before being handed his sentence, the mothers of Johnson, Hamilton and Doe B forgave Thomas, who apologized for the reckless act.

Thomas is one of three suspects indicted in the shooting. Jason McWilliams, who ironically also wears an eye patch, and Taboris Mock are awaiting trial. Thomas and McWilliams have been in jail since January 2014.

This news comes just weeks after suspects involved the 2015 shooting death of rapper Chinx were arrested in New York.
