ADAMS COUNTY, Miss. (WLBT) - A man has received his sentence for his involvement in the death of a teen mother in Adams County.
Carianta Allen will spend 40 years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections after the 2018 murder of Shakeria King.
King suffered a gunshot wound to the upper chest, killing the 17-year-old who was also the mother of a 17-month-old child at the time.
Montreal Brown, Curtavius Knight, Nicholas McGrew, and Allen were all soon placed in police custody after the drive-by shooting. Allen was 17 years old at the time of the incident.
“The senseless murders of our children must stop,” said DA Shameca Collin in a press release Thursday. She thanked Natchez PD as well as Judge Debra Blackwell for handing out an “appropriate sentence for this heinous crime.”
