GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Greenville man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the 2013 slaying of a teenager.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Damien Cooper had pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the fatal shooting 18-year-old Ronald “Bo Bo” Webster of Greenville.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1u05Lum ) that Webster was found lying in the road in June of 2013. He had been shot in the head and the leg.

Greenville police arrested Cooper and Benny Motton and charged each with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Motton had been out on bond after being charged with the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Johnny Love Jr. that year. He is awaiting a trial date.

Cooper had been scheduled to stand trial later this month before recently pleading guilty.
