MILWAUKEE - One of the people who killed Evon Young, a transgender rapper from Milwaukee, has been sentenced to life in prison.

Nineteen-year-old Ashanti McAlister shot Young after he'd been suffocated and strangled.

Two others who have also been convicted in the murder will be sentenced next month. Two more men are still facing trials.
