Jefferson City man gets life in prison for murder

A Jefferson City man was sentenced to life in prison Thursday for a Halloween 2016 shooting.

Terrance Wynn, 21, pleaded guilty in September to second-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree robbery in the shooting death of Terrance Davis on Michigan Street. He was sentenced Thursday to a life sentence on the murder charge, three years in prison on the armed criminal action charge and 10 years in prison on the robbery charge, according to online court records.

The sentences will run concurrently and Wynn will get credit for time served.

Wynn was also sentenced Thursday in a separate shooting on Monroe Street in Jefferson City in November 2016, court records show. In that case, Wynn was sentenced to seven years for first degree assault, four years for unlawful use of a weapon, seven years for receiving stolen property and five years for armed criminal action.

Another suspect in the case, Traivon Jefferson, was found not guilty of murder during a trial in Cole County last month. He’s now being prosecuted in federal court on firearms charges. Jefferson is scheduled for trial in federal court in January.
