NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - An Adams County judge has sentenced 22-year-old Adrian Williams to life in prison for his role in the 2011 slaying of a teenager in the Natchez City Cemetery.
The Natchez Democrat reports that Williams was convicted Thursday in circuit court.
Williams and Keldrick Washington are being tried separately. Washington will go to trial Nov. 27.
Each man is charged with murder in the May 28, 2011, death of 17-year-old Quinton Brown.
Prosecutors say a passerby discovered Brown's body in the cemetery. Authorities say Brown had been shot five times.
A third man, Denzel Fort, pleaded guilty in March to accessory after the fact in relation to the killing. He has not yet been sentenced and is currently free on a $40,000 bond.
