On Wednesday, Joseph Richardson and Kenneth Wadkins were each sentenced to five years behind bars after pleading guilty to shooting a man to death over three years ago.

Rocardo "Tezzy" Cole's body was found on Versailles Road in December of 2010.

Friends and family members of Cole are looking for a harsher punishment and have set up a petition online in the hopes of doing so.
