Man to serve 40-year sentence after pizza delivery man slain
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man who was 16 when he robbed and killed a man delivering pizza in New Orleans will spend 40 years in prison.
Nineteen-year-old Rendell Brown's sentence is the result of a plea deal announced in state court Tuesday. Brown pleaded guilty to armed robbery and manslaughter.
The victim was 35-year-old Richard "Chris" Yeager, who was killed after delivering a pizza in September 2014.
In court Tuesday were Yeager's parents, who testified about the pain of losing their son. Also watching was Brown's co-defendant, Shane Hughes, who faces an April murder trial in Yeager's death.
