PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Providence man convicted of murder in a fatal shooting outside a housing complex that prosecutors say was gang-related has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison.

A Superior Court judge also sentenced 27-year-old Bruce Moten to 70 years behind bars on Monday. A jury in October found Moten guilty of murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and multiple other charges in the October 2014 shooting that left 22-year-old Terry Robinson dead and Delacey Andrade injured.

The Providence Journal reports that Moten’s lawyer had asked for leniency and indicated she would file an appeal on Moten’s behalf.

Two other men previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the killing and are awaiting sentencing.
