Lawrence man whose murder case went to Supreme Court again gets life without parole


A Lawrence County man who was 14 in 2003 when he beat, burned and killed a man was sentenced for the second time to life without parole Tuesday in a high-profile case that caused the U.S. Supreme Court to change how juveniles are sentenced. 

At a virtual re-sentencing hearing, Judge Mark Craig said Evan Miller, now 32, will spend the rest of his life in prison.
