PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In 2014, Marcellus Ramon Allen was convicted along with 2 other men in the death of Kenny Ray Henry Jr. 

Heny was shot to death May 9, 2012 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 — Allen, Tracey Christopher Lomax and Xabian Robert Riley — at an apartment. Police said the men were inside cleaning and changing clothes.

In October 2017, the Oregon Court of Appeals overturned the convictions for all 3 men and sent the cases back to Multnomah County to be re-tried. 

Allen was re-tried and convicted. Friday, he was sentenced to life in prison with a 25-year minimum sentence that will run consecutively to the 20 years he’s already serving on an attempted aggravated murder case, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said.
