A Richmond teen was sentenced to six years in jail Tuesday for his role in the deadly shooting of Surrey’s Kacey Rogers last year.

Fabien Luther Marcus Lyde, 19, was sentenced in Surrey Provincial Court after pleading guilty to manslaughter in April.

Lyde is one of three people charged in Rogers’ Feb. 26, 2012 death. Surrey’s Russell Bidesi and New Westminster’s Joshua Martinez are charged with second-degree murder and weapons offences, but their cases have not yet gone to trial.

It’s alleged Rogers, 31, was the victim of a targeted attack at his home near 140 Street and Grosvenor Road in Surrey. He was not known to police and at the time, investigators called it “a planned home invasion turned deadly.”

Lyde was credited for time already served, leaving 52 months remaining of his prison sentence.

Bidesi, 22, is also charged with second-degree murder in connection with the Christmas Eve 2011 shooting death of Surrey’s Bradley McPherson.

Bidesi and Martinez are scheduled for court appearances in June and July for the Rogers case.
