CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Charlotte man has been convicted of killing his cousin in 2009.
The Charlotte Observer reported that 26-year-old Ronald Jerome Tolson was convicted of second-degree murder on Wednesday.
Superior Court Judge Robert Bell sentenced Tolson to at least 15 years in prison for the death of 25-year-old Markus Foster.
Prosecutors said Tolson confronted Foster outside his apartment in southeast Charlotte. Prosecutors say the men had been involved in a dispute earlier that evening.
Prosecutors said Tolson fired several shots and Foster was hit twice.
