Shawn Allen, 37, will be eligible for parole after serving 63 years in prison, according to Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh. Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Susan Baker Ross issued the maximum sentence allowed.
Allen was found guilty on May 26 of three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of murder, and tampering with evidence for killing 43-year-old Horace Lee and Lee’s daughter, Azeria Tucker, on July 12, 2020.

Police say Allen jumped into his Cadillac Escalade and chased after Lee. Allen reportedly spotted Lee a few blocks away walking on the sidewalk when he intentionally ran over Lee and his daughter, who tried to escape by running up a driveway. Lee and his daughter both died at the scene.
