Life plus 20 imposed in killing


August 15, 2006|By JULIE BYKOWICZ

A Baltimore judge yesterday sentenced a man convicted of first-degree murder and a weapons violation to life in prison plus 20 years.

Corey McMillon, 29, of the 2000 block of Ruxton Ave. was found guilty June 20 in the shooting death of Jamel St. Clair, 17.

St. Clair was shot four times April 1, 2005, in the 2000 block of E. North Ave. Police believe McMillon tried to rob St. Clair and shot him when St. Clair tried to run away.

McMillon briefly escaped custody in October when he was taken to Mercy Medical Center downtown for an unknown medical problem. He removed his handcuffs and fled onto Calvert Street. Police found him two days later at a hotel in Rosedale.
