ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- An Annapolis man convicted of the shooting death of a visitor to his ex-girlfriend's home has been sentenced to two life sentences.
Twenty-six-year-old Charles Spriggs Jr. was convicted in November of first-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Howard Durley. The Capital of Annapolis reports (http://bit.ly/1lGCEdu) that he was sentenced Thursday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.
The life sentences have the possibility of parole.
Prosecutors say on Jan. 23, Spriggs and 20-year-old William Chase confronted Durley as he left the ex-girlfriend's home in Annapolis.
Authorities say Spriggs told Chase, who had a gun, to shoot Durley. Prosecutors say Chase shot Durley in the chest, chased him and shot him again. Durley died at the scene.
Chase pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in July. He will be sentenced Friday.
