After third trial, man sentenced for 1984 A.C. murder

Posted: Updated:

After three trials and 18 years on the run, a New York City man has been sentenced in an Atlantic City homicide that happened nearly 30 years ago.

Brian Wilson, 47, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of manslaughter, for fatally shooting Zebedee Newmones on September 14th, 1984.  Newmones, from Wilmington Delaware, was shot five times on an Atlantic City street corner.

Wilson was named a suspect in 1985, and not found until 2002.  He was tried two other times for the murder, the first was a mistrial, the second he was found guilty, but successfully appealed the ruling.

Wilson was finally found guilty of manslaughter in December 2012, but was acquitted on murder and aggravated manslaughter charges.
