A man by the name of Shun Lamar Birch has been convicted on a federal weapons charge. Birch has known ties to Willie Clark, the suspected murderer of Darrent Williams. Once sentenced this upcoming February he could be given up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
In the Aurora gun case, prosecutors said that on Nov. 19, 2008, police found two shotguns, a .45-caliber pistol, and numerous rounds of ammunition in Birch’s townhouse in Aurora. Birch had been convicted in Adams County in 2007 of marijuana possession with intent to distribute, a felony. The jury deliberated for less than an hour following a three-day trial before reaching their guilty verdicts, prosecutors said.
Of more importance to the Darrent Williams case is that Birch has a pending trial for the murder of Kalonniann Clark who was killed before being put on the stand to testify against Willie Clark. Accused accomplice Brian Hicks also has yet to stand trail in that case. All three defendants pleaded not guilty.
