GREENVILLE — Two men have been convicted of shooting and killing a man during a home invasion in Travelers Rest more than a year ago.
A Greenville County jury deliberated three hours before returning the verdict Thursday.
Twenty-six-year-old Lamar Dontray Williams and 35-year-old Richey Lamont Boyd were convicted of charges including murder, burglary and kidnapping.
Thirty-six-year-old Wallace Cruell Jr. was shot and killed at his home in October 2010.
Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen sentenced Williams to life in prison. Boyd was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Three people who had pleaded guilty to lesser charges and testified that Williams was the shooter were sentenced to terms ranging from 15 years to 20 years in prison.
Attorneys for Williams and Boyd argued the testimony of the three other suspects was questionable.
