William Riley Gaul will serve no extra prison time besides a mandatory life sentence for killing his ex-girlfriend, Central High School honor student and cheerleader Emma Walker, Knoxnews reports. A Knox County jury found Gaul, 20, guilty in May of first-degree murder, stalking, reckless endangerment, theft, tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony in Walker’s death. His sentence allows the possibility of parole after 51 years — at age 71.
