Stein Sentenced to Life In Prison Without Parole


29-year-old Roger Stein was sentenced Wednesday after being convicted of first degree murder.

The ruling took five minutes inside Judge Susan Beebe's courtroom.


In a prepared statement, Stein said he's innocent and will appeal the life sentence. In November, a jury convicted him of first degree murder for shooting 22-year-old Ricky Upshaw in the back and then fleeing the scene.


Ricky Upshaw's friends and family were also in the courtroom during sentencing.
