Reese sentenced to 33 years to life in Youngstown shooting

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown man will spend at least 33 years in prison for a 2011 shooting death on the city’s south side.

Lamar Reese, 33, was sentenced Tuesday to 33 years to life in prison in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Josh Davis.

A Mahoning Count jury took less than three hours to find Reese guilty at his trial.

The shooting is believed to have followed a robbery.

Another suspect in the case, Frankie Hudson, is scheduled for a pretrial on Wednesday.

Reese, according to court records, was already severing a prison sentence after a 2012 conviction for burglary and carrying a concealed weapon. He was sentenced to two years prison on those charges.
