Today, a jury found Peter Gales GUILTY of Murder. In May of 2017, innocent victim Sheneice Sumpter was found in her car behind an abandoned house with a fatal gunshot wound. After a short investigation, it was determined that her boyfriend at the time, Peter Gales, was responsible. Sheneice was a family-oriented, single mother who enjoyed spending time with her loved ones. Assistant District Attorney Keith Blackwood stated, “We are very happy that today justice was served for Sheneice Sumpter. This case highlights the importance of confronting intimate partner and domestic violence in our community. Sheneice was a light to everyone that knew her. We thank the jury for holding the defendant fully accountable for her violent murder.” Sentencing will be held on 7/1/21.
