A Houston man, who fatally shot a 24-year-old at a Copperfield-area apartment complex in 2020, was sentenced Monday to 40 years in prison for murder, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“Gun violence is out of control in Harris County because of cases like this in which someone thinks a handgun gives them a right to steal, maim and kill,” Ogg said. “The victim in this case had a loving family and a bright future, and all of that was taken away from him.”
Darius Handsborough, 29, agreed on Monday to 40 years in prison after being found guilty of murder earlier this month by a Harris County jury for the death of Devonte Antrel Purdue on August 13, 2020.
