By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // May 12, 2018
faces up to 20-years in prison at Aug. 21 sentencing
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Friday, 54-year-old Sharon Myers (Kenney) pleaded guilty in a Brevard County Court to the charge of Manslaughter with a firearm for her participation in the 2008 murder of her then-husband, Gary Kenney.
Myers will be sentenced on August 21, 2018, by the honorable Judge Morgan Reinman and faces up to twenty years in prison for her role in the homicide.
The investigation commenced on June 16, 2008, when Gary Kenney was found deceased inside his residence in Merritt Island.
Myers was implicated as the mastermind behind a carefully coordinated plot with her son, Gary Kenney and another male, Rubin Nero, in luring the victim to the home to complete the murder.
The scene was manipulated to appear as if Mr. Kenney had been the victim of a home invasion and robbery. Both Darryl Kenney and co-defendant Rubin Nero were convicted in 2010 for the murder and are currently serving Life Sentences.
Please join me in thanking all of the agents, crime scene investigators, and witnesses who have worked on this case for the past 10 years to ensure justice was served.
Additionally, I would like to thank our State Attorney Phil Archer and the prosecutors of this case Susan Garrett and Kari Kies who’s dedication and efforts are greatly appreciated.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
