SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- One person has pleaded guilty in a 2005 home invasion that killed a Spartanburg man.
The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that 32-year-old Roosevelt D. Ross was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to murder.
Ross was among the people arrested after the death of Abdul Haleem Ali II. Authorities say several men stormed into Aliís apartment in August 2005, shot him as he lay in bed and stole his wallet and car. Ali ran to a nearby store for help but died a short time later.
Police have said five guns were fired during the shooting.
Another man is now on trial. Prosecutors say Michael Marion Arnold faces a murder charge, but his attorney says Arnold is innocent.
