A Sikeston man is heading to prison for the shooting death of a friend. Reports from the Standard Democrat say that 19 year old Tiarrius Gant was sentenced by Judge Fred Copeland on Tuesday to five years in the Department of Corrections on a charge of voluntary manslaughter and 15 years for unlawful use of a weapon with the sentences to run consecutively totaling 20 years. On two counts of armed criminal action, he was sentenced to three years in the DOC on each count with these counts to also running consecutively totaling six years which will run concurrently with the 20-year sentence. In connection with a second count of unlawful use of weapon (carrying a concealed weapon), Gant was sentenced to four years in the DOC. This sentence will run concurrently to the previous sentences.
