All four convicted in Kevin Quick's murder sentenced to life in prison

WVIR NewsroomCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - On Monday, four gang members convicted in the murder of Waynesboro police reserve captain Kevin Quick learned their fates.

Daniel Mathis, Kweli Uhuru, Shantai Shelton and Mersadies Shelton were sentenced in federal court in Charlottesville.

Back in February the four were convicted in the 2014 murder of Kevin Quick, and for aiding in a gang conspiracy that included a crime spree across central Virginia.

Mathis was sentenced to life in prison, plus 132 years along with fines and restitution.

Shelton was sentenced to life in prison plus 82 years along with fines and restitution.

Uhuru was sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years.

Shelton was sentenced to life in prison plus 82 years.

The court was hearing victim impact statements on Monday, and the mother of Kevin Quick's baby said they are "heartbroken and shattered from the evil acts of these evil people."

Quick was reported missing on Saturday, February 1, 2014. After a week of searching, crews found his body in Goochland County. Authorities say Quick was shot in the head.

A new trial took place in Roanoke after a federal judge declared a mistrial in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville back in May of 2015. This was because investigators discovered Kweli Uhuru had obtained and shared a list of potential jurors and their information.
