BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 27-year-old Baton Rouge man has been sentenced to life in prison in the 2010 shooting death of a teenager.
The Advocate reports Hennessy Richard Christof was convicted in December of second-degree murder in the May 2010 killing of 17-year-old Demarcus Woods.
An East Baton Rouge Parish jury also found Christof guilty in December on two counts of attempted second-degree murder in the wounding of two men in the incident.
State District Judge Don Johnson sentenced Christof on Monday to a mandatory term of life in prison on the second-degree murder charge. The judge also sentenced Christof to 10 years on each attempted murder charge but ordered those terms to run concurrent with the life sentence.
