ALLENDALE, S.C. (AP) — A man was sentenced to life in prison for killing a South Carolina teenager in an argument over a missing tablet computer, prosecutors said.
An Allendale County jury found Jamel Dajour Williams, 30, guilty of murder in the March 2018 shooting, prosecutor Reed Evans said.
Williams had just spent the day riding around with two men when they began arguing about the missing tablet inside an Allendale apartment, Evans said.
A witness testified Williams locked the apartment door and threatened to kill 18-year-old Tyrek Mitchell.
Mitchell tripped and fell as he begged for his life and was shot and killed. Williams then shot a second man in the face but he survived, Evans said in a statement.
Under state law, Williams will not be eligible for parole.
