A suspect who allegedly killed a Detroit police officer and another man four years ago has been sentenced to 46–60 years in prison.
The 32-year-old man, JuJuan Parks, on Wednesday 22nd, was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the unrelated 2019 deaths of officer Rasheen McClain and Nathaniel Loyd.
Charges in connection with the death of a second man, according to reports, were dismissed under a plea agreement.
Assistant Prosecutor of Wayne County, Matthew Penney, during the sentencing, read a letter written by McClain’s widow, Heidi McClain.
Penney quoted Mrs Heidi McClain by saying:
“I will never understand or accept how a person can be so evil with so much hate in their heart that they can take a person’s life.”
Park’s attorney, Evan Callahan, said his client is extremely remorseful for his actions, adding that he (Park) seeks forgiveness from the families of the three men he killed.
Recall that on November 20, 2019, Rasheen McClain was shot in the neck, and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
