Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Shooting

Corey Lamont Hennings, 33, of Jackson, entered a “besti nterest” plea Monday to Attempted First Degree Murder in Madison County Circuit Court Division, I. He was sentenced to 20 years in the Tennessee Department of Correction with a release eligibility of 30 %.

RECAP:

On May 31, 2009, around 5:45 p.m., Jackson Police received a call that a woman had been shot in Lincoln Courts. Felicia Wilson, who was then 24-years-old, of Jackson, was found lying on the ground in front of the 239 building. She had suffered gunshot wounds to the upper left arm and left side, which left her paralyzed from the waist down.

Investigators identified Corey Hennings as the person responsible. The investigation revealed that there was an argument between Hennings’ girlfriend and her father, outside the girlfriend’s apartment. During the dispute, Wilson became involved in the argument. Hennings retrieved a handgun and shot her twice.
