Man gets 80 years in death of ex-police spokesman’s brother

February 5, 2019

BALTIMORE (AP) — A judge has sentenced a man to 80 years in prison in the death of a former Baltimore police spokesman’s brother, calling it a killing in the “most brutal fashion.”

Baltimore Circuit Judge Gregory Sampson sentenced 22-year-old Terrell Gibson on Monday in the killing of 24-year-old Dion Smith, brother of now Baltimore County spokesman T.J. Smith.

News outlets report Gibson was convicted of first-degree murder and using a firearm in commission of a felony after Dion Smith was found shot in the head in 2017.

T.J. Smith addressed the court and called Gibson a “predator” who was seen on surveillance footage “stalking like a hyena” outside his brother’s home. Although Gibson and his brother were friends, he said, Gibson hasn’t shown remorse and deserved to go to prison for life.
