Baltimore man sentenced after murder conviction in case of a body found in Eden

SOMERSET COUNTY, Md. - Officials say that a Baltimore man who pleaded guilty in the case of a body found in Somerset County has been sentenced.

According to the Baltimore County Assistant State's Attorney, 24-year-old Kevin Nixon of Baltimore, was sentenced to life suspend all but 30 years to serve and five years of supervised probation upon release pursuant to a guilty plea.

Nixon pleaded guilty to first degree murder last May after he was involved in the death of Damon Jennings that happened two years ago. Nine days after Jennings was stabbed, Nixon helped dispose of the body in Eden.

Nixon was originally tried in Somerset County, but the case was moved to Baltimore because that's where the crime took place.
