OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City pharmacist convicted of murder says being behind bars is like being in hell.

Jerome Ersland told The Oklahoman newspaper when he heard last week's guilty verdict, he knew he was doomed forever.

Ersland plans to appeal his first-degree murder conviction for shooting Antwun Parker during a 2009 pharmacy robbery.

Security video showed Ersland shooting Parker five more times after he was knocked unconscious from an original gunshot wound.

Parker's family is suing Ersland for wrongful death.
