Louisville, KY (WDRB) -- A week before his trial, a man charged with murdering a three-year-old takes a plea deal.
The victim's family is upset. They want Roderick Moss to serve more time.
Wearing t-shirts in loving memory of 3-year-old Davion Powell, his family walked out of the courtroom upset with a plea deal offered to the man who admitted to killing the child.
Rodericka Bryant, Powell's mother said, "I'm his mother. You can only imagine how difficult it's been." She says, "It's crazy when you get more time selling dope, robberies, than murder. It's crazy, the world we live, is all I can say."
In court, a week before he was supposed to go to trial, Roderick Moss took a plea deal, pleading guilty to one count of manslaughter and five counts of wanton endangerment.
The Commonwealth is recommending Moss serve 20 years and not be eligible for probation.
In May of last year, police say he was in a car and fired several shots at an apartment building that had six children inside. One of the shots hit Powell, who died a few days later.
Clarence Young III, the toddler's grandfather, said, "We just feel that time they've given, he's a baby killer, so no amount of time can justify the wrong that he has done. Whatever time the state has recommended we just have to accept it, but we're not pleased."
The driver of the vehicle, Juanisha Sanders, also took a plea deal. She was sentenced to three years for charges including tampering with physical evidence and retaliation.
Police say Lakeycha Ferguson-Pope was also in the car with Sanders and Moss. She pleaded guilty to threatening two witnesses with Sanders who talked with police. Her recommended jail sentence is three years, but she'll be sentenced at a later date.
Bryant said, "I feel like they didn't do enough. I'm angry and upset and I love my son and wish he was here, ain't nothing going to bring him back."
Young says, "We are just going to love each other. We're going to remember Davion in a special way with all the memories we have."
