A man was sentenced to one year in jail for a 2015 murder.

Terry Caldwell, 50, was charged for the murder of Orlando Thigpen.

The 37-year-old was murdered on Aug. 10, 2015 at the Lakeside Apartments in Flint.

Thigpen was shot after an argument and was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries, police said.

Flint Police Lt. Devon Bernritter said the situation escalated in the parking lot of the apartments.

The suspect, Caldwell, turned himself in at a nearby fire station shortly after the shooting, police said.

At the time, Caldwell was charged and arraigned for first degree murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and felony firearm.

Caldwell was sentenced to one year in jail, five years probation and a $9,000 restitution fee. He was given credit for 337 days already served.
