Feggins sentenced to 4-years in connection with Jackson murder case

JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 25-year-old Mt. Vernon man was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County court to 4-years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony obstruction of justice in the investigation into the January 2017 shooting death of DeAndray Jackson.

Tony Feggins was one of eight men charged in connection with the armed robbery and murder of Jackson in a Mt. Vernon alley.

In exchange for Feggins’ guilty plea earlier this month to the obstruction charge, charges of armed robbery and first degree murder were dismissed against him. He was given credit for 397 days already served in the Jefferson County Jail.

Feggins and others indicted in the case had their charges reduced or amended in exchange for agreeing to testify against 21-year-old John Wells.

A Jefferson County jury found Wells guilty earlier this month of all armed robbery and first degree murder charges against him.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced April 26.

Feggins, Dantrez Brown, Lekedrion Russell, Curtis Devan, Jr., Jarron Liddell, and Deon Frazier, have pleaded guilty to lesser charges in exchange for testifying.
