Judge J. Charles Thompson sentenced 29-year-old Roger Randolph on Wednesday to 20 years to life for murder with a deadly weapon, plus one to 12 years for discharging a weapon where a person might be endangered.

Wells was 31 when he was shot in August 2008 while walking with his 4-year-old son through an apartment complex near downtown.

Authorities said Wells may have had a dispute with Randolph over a dice game.

Wells represented the U.S. as a middleweight at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Randolph was convicted by a Clark County jury in February.


Police: Waitress brought food, but took jewelry

AMBRIDGE — Police say a western Pennsylvania waitress swiped jewelry from the home of a widower under the guise of delivering food to the grieving man.

Ambridge police charged Karri Kathleen Villella with burglary, theft and other crimes Monday in connection with the theft of jewelry that belonged to the man’s late wife.

Investigators say Ms. Villella admitted taking two rings and a house key that she used to return and steal more items.

Authorities say the widower thought Ms. Villella was bringing him food because he was a regular customer at the restaurant where she worked and often sat in her section.

Ms. Villella is being held on $10,000 bail.
