Teen to get 70s years in shooting

COLORADO SPRINGS ” An 18-year-old man will be sentenced to 70 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the drive-by shooting of a former Wasson High School football player near Memorial Park.

Tyrief Reynolds entered his plea Friday in the slaying of 19-year Diontea Jackson-Forest on July 9, 2007. He also pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree because Jackson-Forest’s girlfriend was in the car.

Reynolds will be sentenced Oct. 24 to 48 years on the murder conviction and 22 years on the attempted murder charge. The sentences will be served one after another.

Reynolds also pleaded guilty to attempted murder in separate stabbing case from March 2007. He received a 22 year sentence in that case, which he will serve at the same time as his other sentence.
