BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge man will spend the rest of his life in prison for murdering a man during a robbery.

Aaron Taylor was sentenced on the charge of 2nd degree murder today in 19th Judicial District Court. He was also sentenced for 3 counts of armed robbery.

Prosecutors say the victim, John Calvert, was with a group of people on Aster Street last June when they were approached by Taylor and Mohammed Collins.

Calvert was shot and killed during the robbery.
