A verdict has been reached in the murder trial of Chancey Luna.

Luna has been found guilty of First-Degree Murder after Australian baseball player, Christopher Lane, was shot and killed as he jogged in Duncan in August 2013. He has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The death penalty was off the table due to Luna's young age when the murder happened. The jury was comprised of seven men and five women.

Luna was one of three involved in the alleged “thrill kill” murder.

Michael Jones, 19, has already pleaded guilty to Second Degree Murder and is serving life in prison.

The other teen, 17-year-old James Edwards Jr., is charged with Accessory after the Fact and has testified against Luna and Jones in the preliminary hearing and is still awaiting his sentence.
