Clover man gets probation in teen’s March shooting death

A second defendant originally charged with murder in the shooting death of a Clover teen during a botched drug deal in March pleaded guilty to lesser drug charges, prosecutors said.

A second defendant originally charged with murder in the shooting death of a Clover teen during a botched drug deal in March pleaded guilty to lesser drug charges, prosecutors said.

He pleaded guilty to the lesser charges after cooperating with law enforcement during the investigation, prosecutors said.

Tevin Dye, 20, was sentenced to three years probation under youthful offender status Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana, said Willy Thompson, 16th Circuit deputy solicitor. Dye was deemed least culpable in the crime that ended with the death of Brandon Davis, 17, Thompson said. More, Dye must continue to cooperate in the case where three people were charged with murder and others with obstruction and other crimes.

Javeas Cohn 20, the shooter, was sentenced to 16 years in prison last month after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter and other charges. Davis took the drugs and Cohn shot at the fleeing car, hitting Davis. Cohn had initially tried to say someone else was the shooter but admitted he fired the gun after police found his fingerprints on the weapon.

Murder and other charges remain pending against Ezekiel Lundquist, 21.
