Alvin McCurdy faces 13 years for involuntary manslaughter

On October 27, 2009, several CMHA residents reported hearing gunshots and seeing blood in one of the elevators of their building located at 16700 Lakeshore Blvd. in Cleveland. The building manager directed the maintenance man to conduct a check of the building.

The maintenance man determined that the gunshots came from apartment #403. The manager and maintenance man entered the apartment where they found 64-year-old Earlie Jackson fatally shot. On August 11, 2010, Alvin McCurdy, 58, of Cleveland, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter with a 3 year firearm specification and a forfeiture specification. He faces a maximum of 13 years in prison.

Alvin McCurdy’s sentencing is scheduled for 8:30 am in front of Judge Kathleen Ann Sutula.
