A man tied to an ongoing federal murder and racketeering case will serve time for a killing in Danville.

Tredarius Jameriquan Keene will serve 26 years for his role in the fatal 2017 shooting of Antwan Duval Tucker.

Danville Circuit Judge James Reynolds handed down the sentence to Keene, 23, Tuesday morning.

On May 22, a jury found Keene guilty of charges stemming from the shooting.

Co-defendant Dashaun Lamar Trent, 25, pleaded guilty during the May trial to his role in the shooting. The plea netted him a sentence of a year and a half.

Another person involved in the shooting was K’Darius Taequon West, who pleaded guilty in September to his role and is now serving a 27-year sentence.

Beyond his state charges, Keene was named as one of 21 accused gang members across two federal racketeering indictments. He is federally charged in connection to the shooting death of Christopher Lamont Motley in August 2016
