Emanuel Kidega Samson will spend the rest of his life in prison for shooting and killing Melanie Crow in 2017 during a mass shooting at an Antioch church, a jury ruled Tuesday. The Tennessean reports that he won't be eligible for parole. The life sentence applies only to the first-degree murder charge. Samson faces sentencing for 42 other criminal charges he was found guilty of, which include seven counts of attempted murder for injuring other church members during the shooting.
