Kenneth “Kent” Davis plead guilty to a 2014 aggravated assault and was sentenced Friday morning.

Davis, 26, was sentenced to 10 years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, five years suspended, five years to serve followed by five years post-release supervision.

According to the Associated Press, the assault, which left the victim in a coma, occurred Aug. 23, 2014, outside of Huddle House in West Point. The altercation began at Waffle House, but later the assault by multiple men occured in the parking lot of the Huddle House. The assault was found not to be motivated by race or the victim’s military service.

On Oct. 9, Marquavious “Frankie” McMillan, 34, plead guilty to one count of aggravated assault and was sentenced to eight years with six suspended, and two years to serve and five years on post-release supervision.

According to a statement by District Attorney Scott Colom, this plea was based on McMillian’s degree of involvement in the assault and his cooperation with law enforcement.

McMillian is being held at the Clay County Jail.

The third man involved in the assault, Courtez McMillan, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in April, and most of his seven year sentence was suspended so he was released on the the day of his sentencing after receiving credit for the 20 months he had already served in jail. He is serving probation and was fined $1,000.
