DETROIT (AP) - A man convicted in the fatal carjacking and shooting of a Detroit musician who was killed after performing at a Christmas Eve church service has been sentenced to prison.

WDIV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aoj6tq ) 33-year-old Charles Cox was sentenced Thursday to the mandatory term of life in prison without parole after being convicted of first-degree murder and other charges.

Cox maintains his innocence.

Police say Anthony Tolson was ordered out of his Chevy Trailblazer on Dec. 24 and shot. He had played bass guitar at the service and was heading to his mother’s home with gifts for his three children.

Police say the 33-year-old Tolson was killed over the vehicle’s expensive rims. Darnell Young earlier was sentenced to 33-60 years in prison. Devan Williams is on trial in the case.
