MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A 21-year-old man convicted of two counts of capital murder has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey tells news outlets that Elijah Frazier was found guilty Monday on the charges in the death of 29-year-old Keon Sankey.

Officials say Sankey was shot and killed in November 2013 while he was trying to buy marijuana.

Prosecutors say Frazier approached Sankey and demanded money at gunpoint. Sankey fled but Frazier chased him, firing a shot that hit the victim in the leg.

Officials say Sankey made it to a nearby car, but Frazier caught up with him, firing multiples shots into the car, killing Sankey.



A second suspect in the case was acquitted in May.
