KALAMAZOO,  Mich. (WOOD) — A man found guilty in the murder of a Western Michigan University student will spend the rest of his life in prison.

A judge Monday sentenced Jordan Waire to life in prison without the possibility of parole in connection the December 2016 shooting death of 19-year-old Jacob Jones.

Jones was shot and killed at SoHo Apartments on S. Howard Street, west of campus. Police have said they believe he was selling a small amount of marijuana at the time of the shooting.

Earlier this month, a jury convicted former WMU basketball player Joeviair Kennedy of armed robbery in the case. Kennedy was acquitted of murder.

Waire must first serve a six-year sentence on three counts of felony firearm before his life sentence kicks in. The judge also sentenced him to 30-50 years in prison for armed robbery and 6-10 years for being a felon in possession of a firearm, but those sentences will run concurrently with his life sentence.
