HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Hartford man has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for the 2006 shooting death of a teenager who was gunned down while standing with a friend in Hartford.

Prosecutors say Paul Davis was sentenced Thursday in Hartford Superior Court. Authorities say he was arrested in 2009 as a result of an investigation into the slaying of 15-year-old Kerry Foster and wounding of a second, 14-year-old teenager in the drive-by shooting on May 28, 2006.

Davis was convicted in March by a jury of accessory to murder, conspiracy to commit murder and criminal attempt to commit murder.

Charges against a second defendant, Ackeem Riley, are pending. He has pleaded not guilty.
