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.
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.
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.
