According to the Weatherford Democrat, one of two men arrested following the October 2008 murder of the 24-year-old guitarist for the Texas metal band SKARD SOUL over a quarter pound of marijuana pleaded guilty July 21 to burglary of a habitation and received 20 years in prison.
Johnny Preston Reed was allowed to plead guilty to the burglary charge and receive the maximum sentence for the charge because he cooperated in the murder investigation and provided information to investigators about the incident and shooter, Assistant District Attorney Robert DuBoise said.
Guy Evan Graves pleaded guilty last year to murdering Sisk and was given a 40-year sentence.
Jeremy Ryan Sisk was killed on October 21, 2008 at his brother's Weatherford apartment.
According to Star-Telegram.com, Sisk was reportedly shot in the face when he was trying to intervene in an assault on his brother by Reed and Graves.
The two suspects had reportedly gone to the apartment to get money owed to Reed by Jeremy Sisk's brother.
Witnesses told police that Reed had previously "fronted" Sisk's brother a quarter pound of marijuana to sell.
When Sisk's brother could not provide the money, the men began beating him up.
Sisk, who'd been staying the night at the apartment with his girlfriend, ran inside the bedroom to help his brother but was shot in the face by Graves during the fight.
