BRIGHTON, Alabama – A man gunned down in his Brighton home served 11 years in prison for murder after being convicted at age 17, but friends and family said he’d stayed out of trouble since his release 10 years ago.Ronzell Jameico Duncan, 38, was found shot to death Tuesday night inside his Letson Street home. Friends and family said his wife and a friend discovered him about 8:20 p.m. when they went to the house after not being able to get in touch with him all afternoon.Those who went into the home said he was shot in the head, and had been face down on the floor until his wife arrived and turned him over. They believe he had been dead several hours, but no one reported hearing any gunshots.”I loved him to death,” said Ronald “Peanut” Smith, a former Brighton police lieutenant and fire chief. Smith was Duncan’s uncle by marriage.  Duncan had been staying at the Letson Street home while remodeling and trying to sell it. He flipped houses for a living, Smith said.Authorities said a friend last spoke with Duncan midday Tuesday. His wife became concerned when she couldn’t reach him, and called the next door neighbor to see if she had seen or heard from him.
