Alfonso Heggs was found guilty of first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose and second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun on Jan. 24 in the death of Charles Boozer. The jury acquitted Heggs of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a news release.

Heggs must serve 85% of his sentence (21 years and three months) before he is eligible to be released, Webb-McRae said.

On April 10, 2017, authorities responded to the 600 block of Dock Street, where Boozer was found dead of a gunshot wound. The gun used in the shooting was found in Heggs’ bedroom, Webb-McRae said.
