NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A Nashville man has been sentenced to 17 years behind bars after pleading guilty to facilitating in a murder.
Twenty-five-year-old Montario Devin Ostine was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Robert Guye back in 2010. He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of facilitation to commit felony murder.
The 54-year-old man's body was found on October 13 in the hallway of his home on Jefferson Street. Police said his family called a neighbor near the home and asked someone to go knock on his door because they hadn't heard from him. That's when his body was discovered inside the home.
Ostine was scheduled to stand trial in April. His brother, Aaron Ostine, was found guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, and theft back in September in connection with the case. He is serving a life sentence.
Timothy Short, Tavaigner Harrison, and Joycean Harrison have all been previously charged in this case.
Investigators say Joycean Harrison worked as a prostitute and was hired by Guye. She was dating Short at the time.
Authorities think Short killed Guye in the home, then took his wallet. They said Tavaigner Harrison admitted to participating in Guye's death.
