ATLANTA (AP) - Prosecutors say a man has been given two life sentences in the shooting death of a 39-year-old man three years ago.

Fulton County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Marla Robinson said Wednesday that 23-year-old Ladarius Hardy was sentenced to prison in the death of Terry Porter, described as a “lifelong Atlanta humanitarian.” Porter was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the front yard of his southwest Atlanta home on Nov. 12, 2012.

Hardy was also received an additional 25 years.

Prosecutors say Porter’s vehicle, cellphone and wallet was stolen. There were no witnesses, but an investigation including Porter’s phone records and credit card receipts led police to Hardy.

Robinson says Hardy pleaded guilty Monday to charges including murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault.
