Clark gets life plus over 1,000 years in Williams murder

A man convicted of killing Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was sentenced Friday to life in prison plus 1,152 years.

Willie Clark was convicted of first-degree murder in the New Year's Day 2007 drive-by slaying of Williams. Clark's sentencing followed a failed emergency appeal to the
Colorado Supreme Court by defense attorneys.  Before he was sentenced, Clark was declared a habitual criminal, making him eligible for the 1,152 years in prison.
Clark also was convicted of 16 counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the Williams case.

\Rosalind Williams called her son's slaying a cowardly act and said gang violence must be stopped.
