JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 24-year-old Jackson man has been sentenced to life prison after being convicted of murder in a 2007 shooting.

The Clarion-Ledger reports Mark Armon was convicted Wednesday by a Hinds County jury in the death of Christopher Adagbonyin.

Armon is 1 of 2 individuals charged in Adagbonyin's death.

The other, 19-year-old Dominique Mobley is awaiting trial. He is out of jail on a $75,000 bond.
