MAN SENTENCED FOR NOVEMBER 2017 MURDER
A man who pleaded guilty to the November 2017 shooting death of another man was sentenced yesterday afternoon in Denver District Court.
Corey Davis (dob: 03-03-1987) pleaded guilty in August to second degree murder (F2) and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
On November 6, 2017, following a verbal exchange, Davis shot 42-year-old Christopher Moody in the chest as Mr. Moody sat in his car in the 2100 block of N. Olive Street. The victim managed to drive off after being shot but crashed about a block away into an unoccupied parked car, where Denver firefighters responding to a report of a car accident found him. Moody was transported to Denver Health Medical Center, but died of his gunshot wound.
