ROCK HILL — Two men from Rock Hill and one from York will be sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to murder in the January 2013 home invasion shooting death of a Rock Hill man.
The men knew each other and allegedly had a dispute over a dog.
Vincent Alonzo Bratton, 27, of York, was set for trial next week but instead pleaded guilty to murder and other charges in the death of Shannon Jenkins, 31, said Willy Thompson, 16th Circuit deputy solicitor. Bratton had been released on $30,000 bond on drug and weapons charges just hours before the killing.
Rockyee Mobley and Dennis Bernard Page, both 25, have also pleaded guilty and were set to testify against Bratton at trial, Thompson said. All will be sentenced for the homicide, plus armed robbery, conspiracy, and weapons charges, and face a minimum of 30 years in prison.
Jenkins was facing pending drug charges at the time he was killed.
