A Phenix City man was sentenced to life today for fatally shooting a man outside of Riverview Apartments.
Steve Lawrence, 42, shot Clayton Perry, 33, around 11:30 a.m. Aug. 3, 2006, outside the Phenix City apartment complex, Chief Assistant District Attorney Buster Landreau has said. Both men had fathered children with 26-year-old Deborah Johnson, and Lawrence had driven to her Fourth Avenue apartment to pick up his then-infant child.
"I'm glad he got life, no chance of getting out and no chance of causing anyone else the grief that we felt," said Clinton W. Perry, the victim's fraternal twin.
