Shaquille Davis appeared in Muskingum County Common Pleas court on Monday for sentencing in the murder of his cousin Phillip Kimbro Jr.

Davis is the last of six people sentenced in the case. Before accepting a plea deal last month given by the prosecution, Davis attempted to represent himself in the one day trial. Under the deal davis pleaded guilty to murder with a gun specification, abuse of a corpse, and tampering with evidence. Judge Mark Fleegle sentenced Davis to 20 years to life in prison.

"You'll have plenty of time to think about and learn you just don't kill people for the heck of it, you don't have a gun for the heck of it, you'll never be entitled to have gun again for the rest of your life, " said Judge Fleegle.

After Judge Fleegle spoke, he gave Davis a chance to address the court. Davis used the time to apologize to the people he cares about most.

"I apologize for all the people I have hurt from my actions and also to my family. I apologize to my aunt and to my cousin," said Davis.

Davis was also ordered to pay the Kimbro family $1,700 in restitution.
