LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) - A Lexington County man has been sentenced to life in prison in the 2015 death of a man whose burned body was found in Orangeburg County.

The State newspaper reported (http://bit.ly/1Y2fceD) that 27-year-old Michael Sulier III of Cayce was sentenced Tuesday in Lexington after he pleaded guilty to what prosecutors said was a revenge killing for the death of Sulier’s friend.

Prosecutors said Sulier felt that 22-year-old Adam Berry’s brother was responsible for killing 24-year-old Jamie Galloway.

Sulier said he shot Berry on March 4, 2015, near Gaston and set Berry’s car on fire in Orangeburg County.

Berry’s younger brother, Nicholas, is awaiting trial on charges of killing Galloway.

Prosecutors said Galloway was stabbed to death during a party in Pine Ridge in May 2014 while fighting the Berry brothers.
