Judge sentences Devin Seaberry to eight years in prison

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Devin Seaberry on Friday, March 7th to eight years in prison and an additional seven years of extended supervision.

Seaberry is one of five charged in connection with the death of Evon Young. He pleaded guilty in July 2013 to a charge of second-degree reckless homicide.

Evon Young was reported missing on January 2, 2013 by his mother.

According to the criminal complaint in the case, the five defendants were at Young’s home when his roommate (Griffin) accused Young of stealing. Investigators say the defendants took Young to the basement, put a bag over his head, beat him with tools and took turns strangling him with a chain before ending his life with three gunshots.

The five were accused of wrapping Young’s body in a bed sheet. Then, Allen is accused of leaving the house and returning with duct tape and bleach, and a change of clothes for himself and Allen. Allen is accused of duct taping Young’s feet and hands.

The men were accused of tossing Young’s body in a dumpster after killing him. Search crews conducted an unsuccessful search through a landfill in Menomonee Falls following the murder.
