Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for a murder conviction in a 2016 slaying that followed a confrontation at a convenience store.

The Savannah Morning News reports 25-year-old Brandon Elias Fuller, of Savannah, also was sentenced to five years of probation on Monday for a conviction for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Chatham County Superior Court Judge Benjamin Karpf says he was imposing the sentence for what he called a “senseless and inexplicable act,” but said he was leaving to the state Board of Pardons and Paroles on any possible release “after an extended period of time.”

A jury convicted Fuller on Dec. 11 for killing Daniel Landry, a murder that a prosecutor argued was revenge.
