A 26-year-old St. Albans man was ordered Friday to serve to 20 years behind bars for shooting the brother of former NFL wide receiver Kevin Ogletree nearly four years ago, according to Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown.

According to trial testimony, Lonnie Miller, 26, of 119th Avenue, and an unapprehended accomplice attacked the victim, Calvin Ogletree, then 26, and beat him to the ground in front of a location at the corner of Linden Boulevard and 200th Street on the afternoon of Jan. 6, 2012.

Miller then stood over the victim, pulled out a .25 caliber handgun and fired once into the right side of Ogletree’s head. The victim later underwent surgery to remove fragments of the bullet from his brain, but continues to suffer residual effects from the shooting.

Miller was convicted in May 2015 of first-degree assault following a jury trial presided over by Queens Supreme Court Justice Stephen Knopf. Brown said the lengthy prison term imposed is more than warranted given the defendant’s actions.

“The defendant had already taken part in beating his victim when he stood over him and shot the defenseless man in the head,” Brown said.
