BALTIMORE — The man found guilty in the September 2018 felony murder of Timothy Moriconi was sentenced on Tuesday.
De'Andre Sleet was sentenced to life plus 25 years with the first 10 years to be served without the possibility of parole.
He was convicted of eight charges in December, including using a handgun in a crime of violence, felon in possession of a handgun, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and wear/carry/transport of a handgun.
The shooting happened around 7:20 p.m. on September 27 in the 1200 block of Riverside Avenue, in the Riverside neighborhood, a small neighborhood adjacent to Federal Hill, the district of houses, shops and bars that tends to be a catch-all for that area of South Baltimore. The shooting occurred blocks away from Digital Harbor High School.
Officers called to the scene found Moriconi with a gunshot wound to his upper body.
Officials say Moriconi was later taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.
“I hope that today’s sentence brings a sense of justice to the family and community who have remained engaged and steadfast throughout the entire judicial process of this case,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “The outpouring of support for Mr. Moriconi’s loved ones is a true testament to how much the community loved and appreciated this man.”
