CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - A guilty verdict has been reached for the man charged with the capital murder of a Corinth store worker.

Micah Bostic, 26, was convicted on Tuesday, October 10 by an Alcorn County jury for the Feb. 1, 2016, murder of Kris Ledlow.

On that date, Bostic and another man entered the MAPCO on Highway 71 in Corinth and attempted to rob Ledlow, who was shot and killed during the attempt.

Circuit Court Judge Paul S. Funderburk sentenced Bostic to a life term in custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections without the possibility of parole.

Bostic's co-defendant, Brooklyn Traylor, previously entered a plea to first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery on June 30, 2016, and received a life sentence for murder and a 40-year sentence for attempted armed robbery. Traylor, age 17 at the time of the offense, was the gunman in the murder but was not eligible for the death penalty due to his age.
