LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) – One of the men convicted in connection with the killing of 15-year-old Trinity Gay has been sentenced to more time behind bars.
D’Vonta Middlebrooks was sentenced in 2018 to 15 years in prison after he was found guilty of wanton endangerment for Gay’s death.
Trinity was the daughter of Kentucky Olympian Tyson Gay.
On Friday, Middlebrooks was sentenced to 9 years and 7 months more in prison after officials found him in possession with a firearm.
Federal prosecutors say the handgun was found during a search of Middlebrooks’ home last August.
Trinity was caught in the crossfire of a shootout that happened in the parking lot of the Cook Out restaurant in 2016.
