Camp killer gets life, plus 15



ALBANY, Ga. -- Jack Camp can now rest in peace.

Ten days after co-defendants Darrell Anderson and Christopher Ingram were given sentences of life plus five years, Dontavious Wilson was sentenced Monday to serve life plus 15 years.

All three were recently found guilty of murder for shooting Camp, a former paramedic and deputy coroner, in March of 2007 at the Regency Club Apartments in east Albany. The sentences were handed down by Senior Judge Loring Gray.

At the trial in November, the trio was found guilty of felony murder.

Wilson, the triggerman, was also convicted of malice murder.

Wilson was also found to have been in the possession of marijuana, which was recovered shortly after the murder, said Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards.

"The judge gave the maximum sentence," Edwards said. "I'm glad justice was served. Jack Camp was a tremendous contributor to the community.

"I'm glad the result was what we wanted."

Part of the extent of Wilson's sentence was based on his intent to distribute the marijuana, Gray said. It is possible Wilson will be eligible for parole after serving 33 years of his sentence.

"I've seen them get out in 15 years," the judge said.

The three were indicted for their roles in the June 2007 murder.

Camp was found shot in the head at about 1 a.m. the day of the incident. In his public safety career, he was also known as a part-time security guard and rescue expert.
