MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis teenager was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility for parole for killing a 15-year-old boy, according to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.

Prentis Cordell Jackson, 17, was sentenced Tuesday by Hennepin County District Judge Richard Scherer. A jury found Jackson guilty of first-degree murder for shooting Michael Anthony Bluntson Jr. on a sidewalk outside a store in February.

Another suspect in the slaying, Lemuel Jeoozie Radcliffe, also known as Lemuel Joozie Johnson, 18, of Brooklyn Park, is scheduled to stand trial in December on charges of being an accomplice after the fact, the county attorney's office said.
