PHILADELPHIA — A man has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison in the death of an off-duty Philadelphia police officer killed during an attempted robbery at a bus stop more than three years ago.

Twenty-two-year-old Chancier McFarland pleaded guilty earlier to third-degree murder, conspiracy and robbery in the August 2012 killing of 40-year-old Officer Moses Walker Jr.

He was sentenced Tuesday under terms of a plea agreement in which he testified against 25-year-old Rafael Jones, who was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Authorities said Walker, dressed in street clothes, was on his way home from an overnight shift when Jones and McFarland confronted him at a north Philadelphia bus stop and Jones ended up shooting him.
