Man gets 25 years in slay of grandson of Monster.Com founder

AP  |  Stuart (Florida) 

A central man will serve 25 years in prison for the shooting death of a man whose grandfather founded the employment website Monster.Com.

Treasure Coast Newspapers reports 28-year-old Trayvon Jackson pleaded no contest yesterday to second-degree as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

His sentencing is scheduled for December 21.

He had been facing a first-degree charge and minimum life sentence.

Authorities say 18-year-old Dylan McKelvey was found dead in an Indiantown field in March 2014. He had multiple gunshot wounds to his head and body.

Authorities say the teen had been living "the gangster life."

At the time of his death, detectives reported McKelvey had gold teeth and the tattoos of a Stuart-based gang on his hands.

McKelvey's late grandfather was billionaire philanthropist Andrew McKelvey.
