Man gets 22 years for fatal drug shooting

Labelle, Florida (AP) April 2011

A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for killing a one-time friend in a drug-related shooting.

As part of an agreement with Hendry County prosecutors, 21-year-old Teddy Osceola pleaded no contest to second-degree murder. He had initially been charged with second-degree murder with a firearm, which would have meant a mandatory life sentence.

Authorities say Osceola shot 17-year-old Ricky Trevino in October 2009 outside Osceola’s home, which is located on the Seminole Indian Reservation. Osceola and a juvenile witness both told police that Osceola shot Trevino once in the chest and once in the back as he staggered down Osceola’s driveway.
