An Indianapolis man was sentenced for his role in the shooting death of former high school basketball star Larretha “Lala” Draughon.

Trey Bebley, 26, agreed to plead guilty to criminal recklessness, a class C felony. He originally faced a murder charge. The sentence was for four years; one year was suspended. He was also sentenced to probation.

Draughon, who starred at Northwest High School and was an Indiana All-Star, died following a shooting on July 3, 2012, at Ben Davis Little League Park. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the shooting followed a fight between two women that reportedly started on social media and spawned a rivalry.

Police said Bebley is the brother of one of those girls; Draughon was a friend of the girl’s rival.

Six people were charged in the case.
