doe b killer sentenced to 85 years in prison

One of them men responsible for taking Doe B’s life has been sentenced.

On December 28, 2013, Doe B, born Glenn Thomas, was fatally shot at the Centennial Bar and Grill in Montgomery, Alabama. Kimberle Johnson and Timnarious Hamilton were also shot and killed during the incident, while six others suffered injuries.

A little over four years later, Doe’s family has been served justice. On Wednesday, 29 year old Darius Thomas was sentenced to 85 years in prison. Back in December, he plead guilty to three counts of murder and accepted a plea deal for the murders of Hamilton, Johnson, and Doe B. Thomas is the first defendant to be sentenced in the case.

News outlet WSFA reported that Thomas apologized to the victims’ mothers – Barbara Green, Torian Hamilton, and Shirley Thomas. Doe B’s mother stated, “It was a big weight off of my shoulders and me being able to forgive him. It’s been a long battle losing our children. I forgave Darius and I want justice to be served.”

If Thomas had not plead guilty, he would’ve likely received life without the chance of parole. Although, Thomas will most likely die in prison anyway. Judge Greg Griffin told Thomas, “I told you that was a plea you needed to take because I was 99 percent sure I would otherwise be sentencing you to life without parole.”

Prior to his conviction, Thomas, who is a father of five, had no criminal history. He began shooting in the bar after a bottle was thrown at him.

Thomas’ co-defendants Taboris Mock and Jason McWilliams are currently out on bond and do not have set trial dates as of now.

Doe B was a rising rapper signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint.
