Convicted killer gets life in prison
PONCHATOULA- A man will spend the rest of his life in prison after a violent love-fueled tirade in this quiet Tangipahoa Parish town three years ago.
Gary Shurley, 40, was sentenced for the murder of Buster Lock. He also got time for other crimes connected to the incident.
Shurley broke into Lock's home on November 4, 2011. Lock shared the residence with Shurley's ex-girlfriend and her son. After shooting Lock, Shurley stole Lock's car, taking the 15-month-old child with him.
Shurley has no possibility of parole.
