Victor D. Vickers has been sentenced to life in prison without parole in connection with a 2011 murder.

On Friday, Vickers was sentenced for the murder of Edward Ewing and the wounding of another person during a home invasion.

The judge sentenced him to life in prison without the possibility of parole on a first-degree murder charge and to 30 years in prison for his convictions of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

Vickers was found guilty in May. Co-defendant Garron Briggs has already been sentenced to life in prison.

According to court records, Vickers, Briggs, and another suspect forced one victim to unlock the door and lie on the floor. They then searched the house for possessions.

Briggs shot the woman, who continued to lie still and listen to them continue to search the house. She then heard gunshots coming from the bedroom where Ewing was sleeping. Once the intruders left, she called the police.

Chief Trial Assistant Bryan Covinsky and Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Kristin Ries prosecuted the case for the state.
