VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Vicksburg man has been sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the 2013 fatal shooting of a Vicksburg High School student.

The Vicksburg Post reports (https://bit.ly/1CdiVKW ) Devontae Montgomery was sentenced last week by Warren County Circuit Judge M. James Chaney. Montgomery had earlier pleaded guilty to a charge of accessory after the fact to second-degree murder.

Authorities say 17-year-old KeMarvin Stamps, a freshman at Vicksburg High School, was shot and killed March 15, 2013.

Authorities say Stamps was standing on the road with an unidentified teen and was shot during an argument with three people in a truck.

Another man, Christopher Devon Jones, was earlier sentenced to five years in prison on the same charge.

Authorities say the cases against five other defendants are pending.
