Store Clerk Killing Gets NC Man Life Sentence

A North Carolina man will spend the rest of his life in prison after he was convicted of killing a Greensboro convenience store clerk in front of his 13-year-old son.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports a jury took two hours Friday to find 20-year-old Raytheon Williams guilty of first-degree murder.

One of Williams' co-defendants testified he talked about shooting 50-year-old Satwinder Singh during the store robbery to get respect in his gang.

Authorities say three men entered the store in November 2006. Prosecutors offered a plea deal to 21-year-old Arthur Burton III in exchange for testimony and he will spend at least 21 years in prison. A murder charge is still pending against 18-year-old Shawn McIlvain.

    All three of these thuggish turds should have gotten a death sentence. One that would be carried out within 72 hours of it being handed to them. When will the majority of American realize that there is a subculture living among them that have no respect for human life if it is not part of their subgroup.
