A woman who drove her parolee boyfriend and his friend to a remote spot in Vista, knowing that he planned to kill the other man, was sentenced Monday to six years in state prison.
Sheffah Chevis, 20, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the death of 21-year-old D’Angelo Charon.
Chevis — who was secretly dating the married Shyrehl Wesley — testified against Wesley at trial.
After her arrest, Chevis said the killing happened during an argument between the two men.
A passerby found Charon’s body about 5:30 a.m. July 12, 2017, along Twin Oaks Valley Road near Gopher Canyon Road. The victim had been shot three times.
Wesley was arrested later that day. He was on parole for a 2014 armed robbery at an El Cajon gun store at the time of the murder, authorities said.
Deputy District Attorney Keith Watanabe told the jury that Charon looked up to Wesley, who was an aspiring rapper.
In October, a jury found Wesley guilty of first-degree murder in Charon’s death. The following month, a judge sentenced the 22-year-old Wesley to 80 years to life in prison. Watanabe said Wesley killed Charon because he thought his friend had disrespected him.
