HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to life in prison after a jury convicted him of murdering a popular central Pennsylvania organizer, who was fatally shot in the warehouse where he staged events for kids and teens.

PennLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/2e6IXK6 ) Jerren Stuckey cursed at the mother of the victim as the judge prepared to sentence the 26-year-old on Thursday afternoon.

Prosecutors say Stuckey killed 25-year-old Rayon Braxton in November over a bad debt. Police say Braxton was shot seven times.

Witnesses testified that Stuckey had threatened Braxton. One witness said he saw Stuckey flee Braxton’s Harrisburg business moments after the fatal shots rang out.

Stuckey’s attorney had said prosecutors didn’t provide enough evidence to link Stuckey to the killing. The attorney told the judge Stuckey will probably appeal.
