COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two teenagers have been sentenced to prison in the fatal shooting of a central Ohio pizza driver who was killed while making a delivery last fall.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1WyiTXh) reports that a 17-year-old boy was sentenced on Tuesday to life in prison with no chance for parole for 18 years in the killing last Oct. 29 of 45-year-old James Crabtree Jr. The youth, who prosecutors say fired the gun, pleaded guilty in adult court in July to murder with a gun specification.

Nineteen-year-old Sean Fletcher Jr., who was armed and participated in the robbery, was sentenced to nine years in prison, recommended by prosecutors and defense attorneys. He had pleaded guilty in June to involuntary manslaughter and aggravated robbery with a gun specification.

Crabtree was shot seven times.
