Three men sentenced to life in prison in 2010 Flint murder

FLINT (WJRT) -

(07/31/12) - It is life in prison for three Flint men, Devonte Reid, Quentin Green and Latrell Windom, convicted in the December 2010 murder of Timothy Baker.

The life sentences were expected for Reid and Green, but Windom could have been sentenced to less time, in prison, under sentencing guidelines.

Windom, 19, was convicted of second degree murder.

Reid and Green, both 20, were convicted of first degree felony murder.

All three were also convicted of two counts of assault with intent to murder and felony firearm.

Their trials were held last month.

Two others were injured in the shooting, that killed Baker, nearly two years ago.

Police and prosecutors have said it stemmed from a drug deal and robbery.

Baker's loved ones, during sentencing, called his killing selfish and senseless.

Baker's sister, Trameka Davis, urged others to help stop the violence.

"We losing ya'll to the system. It's either to death or in jail. We want that statistic to stop," said Davis.

The family brought pictures of Baker with them to court Tuesday.

One, of his daughter and him, sat open on the judge's bench for Reid, Windom and Green to see.

Circuit Court Judge Geoffrey Neithercut told Green, who was last to be sentenced, "This is Timothy Baker with his daughter.  She'll never see him again."

Baker's daughter was 4 at the time of his murder, according to her mother Nadia Gilbert.  She's now 6.
