Two men sentenced to prison for fatal Racine shooting

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - Two men were sent to prison Friday for shooting a musician to death in Racine 16 months ago. 

22-year-old Kiori Billups was sentenced to 22 years behind bars, plus 13 years of extended supervision after he gets out.  

In a separate proceeding, Billups' 21-year-old cousin Latriell Thurman, got 37 years in prison and 13 years of extended supervision. 

22-year-old Jay Brook was shot to death during a foiled robbery attempt in July of last year.  

According to prosecutors, Billups told the victim he wanted buy marijuana from him -- and they went to a parking lot where Thurman planned to rob Brook instead. The robbery attempt got botched, and that's when the shooting occurred. 

Brook's father denied that his son dealt marijuana. 

Attorneys for the two cousins both expect to appeal the sentences.
