A New Castle Man will be spending time behind prison after pleading guilty to several crimes related to the shooting death of Khalil Hopson in 2019.

Seon Dontae Davon Perry, 33, has plead guilty to a felony account of robbery in connection to the murder. He was originally charged with criminal homicide, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary and aggravated cruelty to animals.

"It was out intent in this case to put this prosecution behind us so the family impacted wouldn't need to suffer any longer," Mercer County District Attorney Peter Acker told 21 News.

Perry was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison for his guilty plea. However, he is not done just yet in court. Perry also has two pending cases in Lawrence County for drug delivery resulting death on top of federal drug charges.

Acker says Perry will more than likely spend an upward of 40 years in prison.

Two other people were involved in the 2019 death of Hopson, Alexis Evonna Holmes and Eddie James Robinson.

Holmes plead guilty to felony robbery and burglary. She was sentenced to 18 to 40 years in prison. 

Meanwhile, Robinson plead guilty to perjury, third-degree murder and cruelty to animals and was sentenced to 15 to 45 years in prison, according to court documents.

Hopson was shot inside of his Cedar Avenue home on May 23, 2019, during an attempted home burglary. He later died at the hospital.

During the investigation, Alexis Holmes first told police she was on the porch of Hopson's home when they were approached by three males holding guns, claiming she heard a gunshot after one of the men held her at gunpoint on the porch, while another man followed Hopson into the house.

However, a further investigation by police uncovered a phone with text messages between Holmes and Robinson that showed them allegedly discussing plans to rob Hopson of several thousands of dollars.

Perry was arrested in North Dakota by U.S. Marshalls and sent to the Mahoning County Jail for his connection to the crime.
