GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) – A man has been found guilty and sentenced on all charges in the murder of Barry Warren, according to Greenwood Police Department.
Demorris Andrews was on trial for murder for an October 2016 shooting in Greenwood.
He was also charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
According to a Greenwood Police Facebook post, Andrews was sentenced to 35 years on the murder charge, 5 years on the possessing a weapon during a violent crime charge and 30 years for the armed robbery charge.
Greenwood Police said in the post, the armed robbery charge will run concurrent with the murder charge.
An investigator has testified that a man on trial for murder told him he didn’t do it, but asked for a copy of the autopsy photo of the victim’s body.
The Index-Journal of Greenwood reports that Greenwood Police investigator Matt Blackwell spoke to Andrews about a week after Barry Warren was killed in his home.
Blackwell testified that Andrews told him he was playing video games and smoking marijuana at another house when the shooting happened.
Blackwell said after he showed the photo of Warren’s body, Andrews asked for a copy to hang in his room. The investigator says he told Andrews that was sick.
