MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- 31-year-old Jorell Luckett has been sentenced to prison after a jury found him guilty on two felony charges in connection with the shooting death of Keanna Moore.
Luckett faced two charges in the case: first degree reckless homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Luckett was sentenced to serve 30 years in prison and 15 years extended supervision on the first degree reckless homicide conviction, and five years in prison and five years extended supervision on the possession of a firearm conviction.
Those sentences are to be served consecutively -- so in all, Luckett will serve 35 years in prison, and 20 years extended supervision.
He has been given credit for 233 days served.
Luckett has been ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution to the Crime Victim Compensation Fund.
Keanna Moore was found dead in a car near 95th and Silver Spring Rd. in Milwaukee in December 2014.
According to the criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to an alley near 95th and Silver Spring on December 14th to check out a suspicious automobile. Officers found Moore inside the vehicle dead -- her body zipped up inside a sleeping bag-type blanket. Officials say she had suffered a fatal gunshot wound.
The complaint also indicates "an intact bullet was recovered" in good condition from the vehicle where Moore was found.
It appears police got their break in the case from fingerprints that were left behind on some packing material recovered from the car. Officials recovered five prints from the packing material -- four of them were associated with Luckett. The fifth was from the victim, Keanna Moore.
Officers caught up to Luckett shortly after he visited a Cousins Subs shop to pick up a paycheck. He was confronted on the street along W. Silver Spring. The complaint says "as officers gave the defendant numerous commands the defendant stated, 'I’m armed! I’m armed!' As (one officer) was able to grab the defendant by his left arm, (the officer) began a pat down of the defendant and felt, in the defendant’s groin area, a hard object that appeared to be a pistol." The officer recovered a "semi-automatic black Lorson brand .380 caliber pistol. The pistol had one magazine which was empty and was loaded with one cartridge in the chamber."
After officers got Luckett into the back of the squad car, the complaint says that Luckett stated, "Man, let’s be real, I ain’t never getting out. You all got the murder weapon. I killed that girl, but it wasn’t like intentional."
