Two Longview brothers, Devante Darden, 19, and Deiontray Darden, 20, were sentenced to 50 and 40 years in prison, respectively, for the murder of 35-year-old Federick Jones, of Longview.

Officers responded to a 911 call about reported gunshots at the Colony Park Apartment Complex on Scenic Drive on Sept. 7, 2015, and found a man, later identified as Jones, on the road with a gunshot wound.

He was taken to a local hospital where he later died. Officers arrested the Darden brothers, along with a 16-year-old juvenile, on Sept. 17, 2015, on murder and aggravated assault charges after a witness stepped forward and identified the three in the Labor Day murder.
