3 sentenced in SC home invasion death

Posted: Updated:
YORK, SC (AP) -

Three men have been sentenced to prison for the shooting death of a Rock Hill man last year.

Twenty-seven-year-old Vincent Alfonzo Bratton was sentenced to 40 years in prison Thursday during a hearing in York.

Prosecutors say Bratton killed 31-year-old Shannon Jenkins after breaking into his home Jan. 27, 2013.

Bratton had pleaded guilty to murder last week.

Circuit Judge Paul Burch also sentenced 25-year-old Dennis Page to 20 years in prison. Twenty-five-year-old Rockyee Mobley was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Bratton broke into Jenkins' home and planned to rob him of at least $10,000 and possibly some crack cocaine. Prosecutors say Bratton had lived with Jenkins and his fiancee for nearly two years before moving out.

Prosecutors said Bratton thought Jenkins had been a police informant.
