A 21-year old Pasadena man was sentenced to 19 years to life in prison on Thursday for the fatal shooting of his then-19-year old girlfriend in 2014, according to Ricardo Santiago, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Santiago added that Crummie pleaded “no contest” in February to second-degree murder for the Feb. 16, 2014, shooting death of Pasadena City College student Iris Acosta of Pasadena.

Crummie shot Acosta at the apartment they shared with Crummie’s family in the 1500 block of N. Raymond Avenue, Santiago said.

Under the negotiated plea arrangement, Crummie also admitted to the special allegation that he personally used a gun in the crime.

Crummie received 15 years to life in prison for the murder charge, as well as an additional four years for the gun enhancement, officials said.

A day after Acosta’s fatal shooting, Crummie turned himself in to investigators. He was accompanied by his mother.

Jonjon Crummie received his sentence from Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Darrell Mavis.
