Omaha man gets prison for 2016 killing of rival gang member

August 30, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 27-year-old man accused of killing a member of a rival Omaha gang has been sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Tontavious Montgomery was sentenced Thursday to 15 to 20 years for manslaughter and 15 to 20 years on a weapons count, to be served one after the other. Under state law, that means Montgomery will have to serve at least 15 years before he’s eligible for parole.

Montgomery pleaded no contest in April to the charges in a deal with prosecutors. He had initially been charged with first-degree murder for the death 22-year-old Terrance Gunn in May 2016.

An accomplice, Alphonso Hall III, pleaded guilty last year to manslaughter and was sentenced to 15 to 20 years in prison.
