HUNTSVILLE MAN SENTECED TO LIFE IN PRISON

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama man has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2015 killing.

Jeremy Cattage of Huntsville was found guilty Friday of capital murder.

The Huntsville Times reports that Madison County Circuit Judge Ruth Ann Hall handed down the sentence of life without parole after a weeklong trial.

Eighteen-year-old Cornelius Morris was fatally shot early on July 26, 2015, as he rode in a car. Another passenger, 20-year-old Alexis Crawford, was injured in the shooting.

The victims had just left a Huntsville strip club with four other people. Prosecutors alleged Cattage fired the shots because of an ongoing dispute with two other people in the car.
