Two Men Sentenced for Thomas Murder

Damonya Cook and Keith Burgess were convicted for their involvement in the Feb. 19, 2011 death of Vincent Thomas in Baltimore Highlands.

Two men have been sentenced for their part in the shooting death of Vincent Thomas.

Damonya Cook and Keith Burgess were sentenced Thursday in Baltimore County Circuit Court by Judge Ann Brobst, according to a statement released by Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger.

Damonya Cook was sentenced to life in prison and a five-year consecutive sentence. Burgess was sentenced to life with all but 35 years

Thomas was found shot to death in a field at Annapolis Road and Illinois Avenue in . He was shot four times in the back and once in the chest. 

Cook and Burgess were arrested about a month later.

Police believe an ongoing dispute between Cook and Thomas led to the shooting. Damonya Cook ambushed Vincent Thomas as he walked toward a
Light Rail stop.

Burgess helped Cook in both the ambush and the disposal of the gun, according to the statement.

My cousin DID NOT kill that boy. He had too much too live for before this corrupt system wrongfully accused him of murder, a previous fight doesn't make you a murder. The truth will eventually come out and Damonya will be home. Its in god's hands now, so we will be seeing you soon Damonya, love you
