St. Louis man sentenced to 13 years in prison for shooting his brother

ST. LOUIS — A district judge on Thursday sentenced a St. Louis man to 13 years in prison for the 2021 shooting death of his brother.

Honor Johnson Jr., 38, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for second-degree murder and an additional three years for armed crime.

Johnson pleaded guilty to both charges and admitted to killing his 33-year-old brother James
Johnson on January 19, 2021 at the 1300 block of Union Boulevard.

Johnson was originally charged with first-degree murder, although it was downgraded to second-degree murder, and he accepted a plea deal with lesser charges after permission from immediate family.

The St. Louis District Court’s office says Johnson cried in court Thursday and apologized to his brother’s young daughter. The judge told Johnson’s family that they must visit and support Johnson while he is in prison so “he knows there is love on the other side of those prison bars.” St. Louis man sentenced to 13 years in prison for shooting his brother
