Breaking: Fuller sentenced to life in prison

Updated: Thursday, March 13 2014, 01:13 PM EDT


Devin Wayne Fuller has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility for parole.

Judge John Solovan handed down the sentence just before noon Thursday. 

The sentencing was forced upon the court after the jury came to a deadlock on Wednesday.  With that deadlock, the death penalty was taken off the table.

Fuller, 21, was convicted last week of the aggravated murder of 92-year-old Lydia Ashworth.

Fuller’s co-defendant Brandon Phelps will stand trial on March 31.
