A Onslow County man has been sentenced for his hand in a 2009 murder where the victim was killed on his mother's front lawn.
Timothy Lacey will spend up to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to accessory after the fact in the death of 30-year-old Kevin Foley.
The Jacksonville man was shot in his mother's front yard in November of 2009.
The district attorney's office says Lacey gave the shooter directions on how to get out of the victim's neighborhood after the shooting.
The man who investigators say fired the gun-- William Castro-- has plead not guilty to first degree murder.
