A 36-year-old reading man pleaded guilty to his role in the deadly shooting of a 17-year-old man in 2017 during a trial in Chester County Courthouse.
Jonathan Malavé pleaded guilty to three murders, robbers and plots on Wednesday to commit a robbery in the killing of David Doyle III in North Coventry Township. Malavé’s trial began on Tuesday.
Malavé, who said the prosecutor had driven a car carrying two of the three co-defendants after the killing, was sentenced to 17-34 years in state prison by Judge David Boltner.
“Jonathan Malavé helped organize drug and money robbers and drove a runaway car after the 17-year-old murder,” said district attorney Fat Ryan. “This is a nonsensical tragedy that affects the lives of so many people. This ruling does not change the fact that the child was killed, but hopefully brings justice to the victim’s family. Probably. “
On September 24, 2017, North Coventry police responded to reports of a person shot dead in a Worthbourgbird home. When police arrived, authorities said they had found Doyle with a gunshot wound in his stomach. The victim was taken to Reading Hospital and died the next day.
Police and county detectives said the shooting occurred during a burglary planned by Malavé and three co-defendants, believing that drugs and money were in the apartment.
The co-defendant’s proceedings are pending.
