JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man charged in a 2013 murder was sentenced on Thursday.

Donte Shepard was sentenced to life in prison in Hinds County Judge Jeff Weill's courtroom. Shepard was the look out as two others burglarized Tony Brown's home on Randall street three years ago.

Detectives say Brown was shot at least seven times; twice in the abdomen, once in the arm and the other bullets striking his right leg.

Brown was able to call 9-1-1 after he was shot in the front room of the home. He died at the scene.

The victim's only child cried as she called Shepard a "cold hearted person" and hoped he would reflect on the senseless murder of her father.
