SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A 27-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole in a 2015 slaying at a Saginaw park.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/2dXm25Y ) Jason Wrenn was given the mandatory punishment Monday after earlier being convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Laquavis Cooper. Neither Wrenn nor his attorney had any comment at the sentencing.

Prosecutors say Wrenn shot Cooper twice in the head in Fordney Park after he and two others agreed to rob Cooper.

Cooper’s aunt Tori Tinglan delivered a victim-impact statement, telling Wrenn: “No matter the time you are given today, it will never change the way we feel.”

Jamal Reid pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit armed robbery and agreed to testify against Wrenn and Charles Wilson Jr., whose trial is Nov. 29.
