A Canyon Country man who shot and killed his neighbor following a vicious seven-year feud has been sentenced to 64 years to life in prison.

Lennie Paul Tracey, 52, who lived on Calypso Lane, was found guilty in the shotgun shooting death of his next-door neighbor, Anthony Davis, 51. Davis was shot on Sept. 24, 2011.

Tracey was sentenced to 50 years for Davis’ murder on Friday and to an additional 14 years for the charge of assault with a firearm.

Jurors found Tracey guilty of first-degree murder in November and found true the allegations he discharged a firearm causing great bodily injury.

Tracey fired a pump-action shogun at Davis from a distance of about two feet; the shot struck Davis in the chest.

He ejected the spent cartridge and shot Davis again, this time in the back, from a distance of at least six feet.

Jurors also found Tracey guilty of assault causing bodily harm in a confrontation with the victim’s wife, Cindy Davis, on the night her husband was shot and killed.

They also found the allegations Tracey used a firearm to commit that assault to be true.
