Valley Man Gets Life in Prison for Killing Immigrant

Posted: Updated:

A Jamestown man convicted of killing a Somali immigrant will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Judge Thomas Merrick sentenced 35-year-old Leron Howard to life in prison without parole on Wednesday.

A jury in August found Howard guilty of murder and criminal conspiracy in the April 2011 death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed.

Howard could face life in prison without parole.

Twenty-two-year-old Janelle Cave was sentenced earlier to 11 years in prison in the killing. She was convicted in February on manslaughter and criminal conspiracy charges.
