Christopher Sivils


A Crossett man was sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in the April 4, 2016 shooting death of Lance Brantley, also of Crossett.

Christopher Sivils, 20, pleaded guilty earlier this month to fatally shooting Brantley, 37, at a friend’s home where Brantley went to take a shower.

Brantley reportedly had a plumbing problem at his home and went to the home of a friend early on April 4, 2016 to take a shower. When the friend returned to his home that evening, he found Brantley’s body in the shower. Brantley had been shot once with a shotgun.
