Third Man Convicted in 2010 Slaying Gets 22 years

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A former Metrobus driver has been sentenced to more than 22 years in prison on federal charges related to the 2010 slaying of a handyman at a Centreville home.

Forty-four-year-old Stacey L. Reed of Manassas pleaded guilty earlier this year to serving as the driver in a planned home robbery in May 2010. Two other men who entered the house encountered handyman Jose Cardona, who died of a gunshot wound defending the home.

The other two men — Tasheik Champean of Suitland, Md., and Reynard Prather of Oxon Hill, Md. — were each sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Cardona’s death went unsolved for more than a year.
