The fourth – and final – defendant in a home-invasion robbery last year that killed a Edgewood father was sentenced to more than 123 years in prison this afternoon.
A jury convicted Clabon Berniard, 24, last month of murder and robbery charges in connection with the April 28, 2010, incident.
James Sanders had advertised a diamond ring for sale on Craigslist. Berniard and three others responded to the ad, then terrorized Sanders, his wife and their two sons.
Sanders was killed when he tried to fight back after seeing one of his sons pistol whipped.
The other three defendants have been convicted and sentenced to prison.
During his trial, Berniard maintained he wasn’t at the Sanders’ home. The jury found him guilty as charged.
Judge Rosanne Buckner sentenced Berniard to 123 years, 10 months in prison.
Staff writer Adam Lynn attended the hearing and will have a story in Saturday’s News Tribune.
