4 convicted of killing Waynesboro reserve police captain Kevin Quick sentenced to multiple life terms

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WRIC) — The four people convicted of killing Waynesboro reserve police captain Kevin Quick were sentenced on Monday in a Charlottesville courtroom.

In addition to all four receiving life-terms, Daniel Mathis was also sentenced to 132 years, Shantai Shelton and Mersadies Shelton were sentenced to 82 additional years, and Kweli Uhuru was sentenced to an additional 10 years. Police say the our four responsible are known members of the 99 Goons Syndikate gang.


Before the sentences were decided, those in court were read a letter written by Yadi Weaver, the mother of the child that she and Captain Kevin Quick had together. She called the four people convicted of Capt. Kevin Quick’s murder “evil people” who “wrecked my family and the families of so many other families including their own.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office was pleased to see all four individuals receive life sentences.

“Knowing that these individuals will spend the rest of their lives in prison can not heal the wounds of losing a loved one, but I do hope it brings some level of closure to Kevin’s family,” John Fishwick said.

Captain Quick was reported missing back on February 1, 2014. His body was found several days later in Goochland County. Police say he was kidnapped and killed after leaving his mother’s house in Afton.
