A Plaquemine man convicted of shooting two people, killing one of them, was sentenced Tuesday to 50 years in prison, District Attorney Ricky Ward said in news release Wednesday.

A state district judge sentenced Isiah “Icky” Lee, 36, 58710 Iron Farm Road, to 40 years in prison for a manslaughter conviction and 10 years for attempted manslaughter conviction, Ward said.

The sentences were ordered served consecutively.

Lee also was sentenced to an additional 20 years for a felony gun possession conviction, which he will serve concurrently with the other sentences.

A 12-person jury convicted Lee on Aug. 9 of fatally shooting Shantley Pinkney, 58335 Homestead Drive, Plaquemine, and seriously wounding Stephen Robertson, Jr., in a mobile home park in Plaquemine on Oct. 16, 2008.

Ward said because of Lee’s criminal history, Ward is considering filing habitual offender charges against Lee which could result in additional prison time.

Prosecutors had asked that Lee be sentenced to the maximum term possible, which would have been up to 80 years in jail if the court ruled that all the sentences be served consecutively, Ward said.
