Chicago man gets 35 years for murder
A Cook County judge has sentenced a Chicago man to 35 years in prison for the shooting death of teenager and the wounding of two older men.
Cook County prosecutors say 30-year-old Cortez Powell was sentenced this week. He was convicted of the murder of 16-year-old Damier Love in 2009.
Officers say Love and the other two victims were standing on a street in the Austin neighborhood when a gunman fired on them. Love was struck in the chest and neck. The two older men survived.
Powell was charged along with a co-defendant who is awaiting trial.
