Three have been sentenced for their role in the 2020 killing of an off-duty Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper and were sentenced earlier this week.

Treyon Washington, 24, of Cannonsburg and CDarrius Norman, 17, of Natchez pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact.  Damion Whittley also pleaded guilty to the murder of Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper Troy Morris.

Whittley was sentenced on Tuesday to 40 years in prison by Judge Tomika H. Irving. Whittley will have to serve 30 years of his sentence before being eligible for parole.

Judge Irving sentenced Washington to 20 years, with 15 suspended. Norman was sentenced to 20 years with 10 suspended.

Morris, a 27 year veteran of the Mississippi Highway Patrol, was shot to death while working as a part-time postal service worker when he caught a flat tire on Highway 61.
