The court sentenced him to  two consecutively run terms of life without parole for the murder and attempted murder and to additional time for the handgun offenses. Upon direct appeal, this Court remanded the case to the circuit court to correct the docket entry regarding the sentence imposed for
attempted first-degree murder and otherwise affirmed the judgment.
