Rochester, New York – According to the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office, Detric Marshall, 39, has received a prison sentence for the murder of his father in a tragic case that has garnered local attention.
Detric Marshall was initially charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of his father, 70-year-old Charles Marshall. However, he later entered a guilty plea. The incident, which occurred back in January, involved Charles Marshall being found with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to URMC but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries.
