Williamsport man sentenced to life in prison for Newberry convenience store homicide

DAVE KENNEDY/Sun-Gazette

Ikeem Fogan, 23, of Williamsport will spend the rest of his life in state prison for a conviction of criminal homicide in the August 2019 slaying of Rhonda McPeak in the Newberry Uni-Mart.

Fogan was also found guilty of 10 other counts related to the robbery and wounding of JoBeth Wetzel, the clerk at the Uni-Mart the night of the robbery.

In addition to the two minimum life sentences he received, which will run concurrent to sentences for other crimes, Fogan will pay $7,000 in restitution to McPeak’s daughter to cover the costs of the funeral.

The night of Aug. 4, 2019, the jury ruled that Fogan entered the Uni-Mart, fired one bullet into Wetzel’s shoulder and fired another into McPeak, who died on the scene.
