A judge ordered a Flint man to spend decades in prison after he pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in the robbery-shooting of a Flint store owner seven years ago.
Genesee County Circuit Judge Archie Hayman sentenced Harvey L. Johnson Monday to 18-50 years in prison. Johnson was ordered to serve a consecutive two-year term for possessing a firearm during a felony.
Johnson made the plea in March. His first murder trial ended with a deadlocked jury last year.
Authorities say Johnson and Markcus McGill robbed Wajdi Badr in March 2007. Badr was struggling with McGill when Johnson fired several shots, hitting both men.
McGill survived and pleaded guilty in 2008 to second-degree murder.
The Flint Journal reports Johnson apologized to his and Badr's family before receiving his sentence.
