Man Gets 105 Years in Prison for Murder

A Missouri man has been sentenced to 105 years in prison for wounding his ex-girlfriend and killing her boyfriend by firing into their vehicle.

Denico Crawley was sentenced Monday for second-degree murder, armed criminal action and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.

Prosecutors say his ex-girlfriend was approaching an Interstate 70 entrance ramp in June 2017 when Crawley fired 11 shots into her SUV. She survived three gunshot wounds and testified that Crawley was the shooter. Her boyfriend, 25-year-old Quenten Hurt, died 16 days later of complications from the shooting.

At the time of the shooting, Crawley was on parole for drug dealing and resisting arrest.
