Hammons Sentenced To Life In Prison

Life without the possibility of parole. That was the sentence issued late Thursday afternoon for 21 year old Justin Hammons.

A Harrison County jury convicted the 21-year old Wednesday of capital murder for the 2002 shooting death of his girlfriend, 17-year old Danielle Richards.

Police say Hammons broke into a home on Commission Road in Long Beach, argued with Richards, then shot her twice. Hammons did not testify in his own defense.
