Man involved in double slaying dies in prison

RICHMOND — A Richmond man who pleaded guilty in 2009 to participating in a double slaying in Lincoln County died in prison Monday.

Neccolus Mundy, 32, died less than a week after being found unresponsive in his cell at Northpoint Training Center, according to The Associated Press.

Mundy was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the shootings of Bo Upton, 18, and Ryan Shangraw, 20. The two men were killed in a Lincoln County trailer in 2002.

Mundy had been experiencing medical issues before his death, and the coroner stated he had no visible trauma to his body, according to the AP.

Autopsy and toxicology reports are pending.

Four other Richmond men were prosecuted in the case, which was drug-related. The following information was obtained through the Kentucky Offender Online Lookup:

• Jamarkos Campbell, 29, was a juvenile at the time of the crime. He was convicted of murder, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. He received a sentence of life without parole for 25 years, and his earliest parole date is in June 2034.

• Matthew Tolson, 29, was a juvenile at the time of the crime and pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal facilitation to commit murder, two counts of criminal facilitation to commit robbery and criminal facilitation to commit burglary. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison and his next parole eligibility date is July 1.

• Charles E. Smith, 31, was convicted of two counts of facilitation to murder, complicity to first-degree robbery and complicity to first-degree burglary. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and his next parole eligibility date is in November 2024.

• Deonte Lamont Simmons, 30, was convicted of two counts of murder, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. He received a sentence of life without parole for 25 years. His earliest parole eligibility date is in April 2032.

All five men also are serving time in a cocaine-trafficking case.
