DETROIT (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old French street artist in Detroit has been sentenced to at least 23 years in prison.

Wayne County Judge Bruce Morrow ordered the punishment Thursday for Drequone Rich.

Bilal Berreni was shot in the face during a robbery outside an abandoned Detroit housing project in 2013. Rich, who is in his early 20s, will be eligible for parole after 23 years. His maximum prison sentence is 40 years.

Jasin Curtis also pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Two other people are charged in the shooting.
