Halloween Killer Gets 30 Years For Boy's Death
A South Carolina man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for killing a trick-or-treater who knocked at his door on Halloween 2008.
Quentin Patrick, 27, was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading guilty to murder in the death of 12-year-old TJ Darrisaw.
Prosecutors say the boy was shot at least a dozen times as he stood on the porch of Patrick's home.
The boy's stepfather and a brother were wounded.
Patrick, a convicted drug dealer, said he fired his AK-47 because he thought a rival drug dealer was back to shoot him again.
Patrick has already been sentenced to more than 16 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a weapon.
