Life sentence in Colorado Springs hacking death

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A second man convicted in the death of a man who was struck with a hatchet-like instrument in Colorado Springs has received a life sentence without parole.

The Gazette reports Judge David Gilbert told Jordan Rowland at a sentencing hearing Thursday that in killing 20-year-old William Mickle in 2011, he had killed both men's hopes.

Roger Julius "Brooklyn" Glover was previously also convicted of first-degree murder in Mickle's death and is serving a life sentence.

Rowland's attorneys had argued Rowland was pressured into involvement in the attack by others, including Glover, and that the others were responsible for Mickle's death.

All three men had been homeless.
