DETROIT (AP) - A judge has sentenced a 22-year-old man to the mandatory penalty of life in prison without parole for first-degree murder in the robbery-shooting of a Detroit cab driver.

A Wayne County Circuit Court jury also convicted Jerrel Files of a firearms charge in the April 13, 2013, killing of 42-year-old Checker Cab driver Michael Uche.

Judge Lawrence Talon issued the sentence Tuesday.

Authorities say Files shot Uche in front of a house on Detroit’s east side.
