From April 2007:
Staring at her brother's killer, Constance Phipps... addressed 26-year-old Elgie Grays of Detroit before a judge sentenced him to a mandatory life prison sentence for gunning down Detroit Police Officer Charles Phipps III...
Also sentenced Wednesday was 29-year-old David Currie of Detroit, who was acquitted of murder but convicted of carjacking and assault with intent to commit murder as an accomplice of Grays. Wayne County Circuit Judge Bruce Morrow sentenced Currie to 35 to 70 years...
Two other men were also charged with Charles Phipps' killing: Detroiters Jason Treadwell, 25, who was convicted earlier this year and Brion McConnell, 56, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and testified against Currie and Grays. Treadwell is serving life in prison; McConnell is serving an 18- to 28-year sentence.
