PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man whose murder conviction was reversed in 2017 pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Tracey Lomax was one of three men found guilty of murder in 2014 for the May 2012 death of Kenny Ray Henry Jr. in Northeast Portland.

Henry was shot to death after he answered the doorbell at his home in the 15200 block of NE Sandy Boulevard.

Following the shooting, there was a 3-hour standoff between police and the suspects — Lomax, Marcellus Allen and Xabian Riley — at a nearby apartment.

Henry died of gunshot wounds from three different firearms found when the three men were arrested.

A Multnomah County jury found all three men guilty of murder in January of 2014 but their convictions were reversed by the Oregon Court of Appeals in December of 2017. The case was sent back to Multnomah County for a retrial.

Allen — who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for trying to murder a critical witness in the case — was again found guilty of Henry’s murder in March of 2018 and sentenced to life in prison.

Riley pleaded guilty to manslaughter and unlawful use of a weapon in August of this year and was sentenced to 20 years.

Lomax pleaded guilty to one count of 1st-degree manslaughter and one count of unlawful use of a weapon on Oct. 4. He was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in prison.
