PRINCETON (WVVA) - A man who was a juvenile at the time of his involvement in the 2011 death of a Bluefield teen received his sentence Tuesday.

Jacob Thomas, 19, was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter, 1-10 years for burglary and 1-5 years for conspiracy in the January 2011 shooting death of 17-year-old Matthew Flack inside the teen's Magnolia Street home.

Thomas was sentenced in Judge Omar Aboulhosn's court.

Three other individuals have also been sentenced in the slaying. Brandon Flack, a cousin of the victim, and Jasmen Montgomery were both sentenced to life in prison. Joseph Flack -- also related -- received 15 years for voluntary manslaughter.

WVVA's Stephanie Crace will have reaction from the family this evening on WVVA News at 6.
