ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man has been ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison for his role in the 2014 shooting death of a bystander who was walking with her grandchildren.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1quj8Hq ) reports St. Louis Circuit Judge David C. Mason sentenced 22-year-old Tommy Dora on Wednesday.

Dora was convicted last month of first-degree murder.

Authorities say of 46-year-old Juliette Cleveland-Davis was walking with her three grandchildren - then ages 7, 5 and 4 - when she was caught in crossfire between Dora and another man, Errick Owens. The children were unharmed.

Owens had already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

A son and daughter of Cleveland-Davis addressed the judge Wednesday, saying they forgive Dora.
