Montgomery County judge Joseph Smythe sentenced Ezra Childs to 5-10 years behind bars followed by five years’ probation.
Prosecutors say Rayshon Carwheel opened fire when he found another man wrapping Christmas presents with a former girlfriend, the mother of his child.
Ezra Childs pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and carrying a firearm without a license, and agreed to testify against the man whom police say orchestrated the murder of a rival in Cheltenham.
Prosecutors say the US Marshals and Philadelphia Police homicide were able to track down Rayshon Carwheel, 24, and arrest him for the murder of Robens Borno.
Montgomery County authorities say it appears jealousy over another man may have sparked a Christmas Day shooting in Cheltenham that left one man dead and authorities looking for the murder suspect.
