GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) - One of six men charged in the September death of a Spencer Township man was sentenced to prison Tuesday, but the sentence apparently did not sit well with the victim's family.
Relatives of Brent Luttrell, who was beaten, stabbed and shot Sept. 8, caused a commotion outside of Kent County Circuit Court Judge Donald Johnston's 11th floor courtroom following the sentencing for 29-year-old Christopher Paul Duncan.
A woman stepping off the elevator was inadvertently punched in the face, breaking her glasses, court officials said. The woman says she wants to press assault charges.
Duncan, 29, was sentenced to 7 to 22 ½ years in prison for home invasion. Investigators say he helped coordinate the Sept. 8 raid at Luttrell's home on Pinewood Street NE, believing Luttrell had $80,000 in money and drugs stashed inside. That was not the case.
