MARION COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A 21-year-old Columbia man was sentenced Friday to a total of 145 years behind bars for charges related to a man's death in August 2007. Algeno Lorenzo Flowers was 23 when he was shot to death.

Joshua Moore was charged with Manslaughter, six counts of Armed Robbery and a charge of Conspiracy. A Marion County jury found him guilty on all the charges back on October 21.

At Friday's sentencing, Judge Harrell also ordered Moore to pay $11,225 in restitution, a $1,000 fine, $2,000 into the Public Defenders Funds, and the court costs.

The armed robbery sentences and the Conspiracy sentence will be served concurrently and will begin after the Manslaughter sentence has been served.
