TOWSON, Md. (AP) - A man who killed another man in a drive-by shooting has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus 20 years for the crime.
Michael Martin, 23, was sentenced Wednesday in Baltimore County Circuit Court. He had been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Robert Holiday.
Prosecutors said Holiday and two other people were shot on Feb. 18, 2013 by Martin as he was driven in a car. Holiday died as a result of two gunshot wounds to his back. The two other victims survived.
Investigation revealed that Holiday had been in a physical confrontation with Laquesha Lewis when he tried to visit his child. Lewis sent a text to Holiday that he would soon die.
Prosecutors said Lewis repeatedly texted Martin while she spoke to Holiday on the phone, which allowed Martin to located him.
Lewis was previously convicted in the murder and sentenced to life in prison.
