13-Year-Old Jamarion Lawhorn Sentenced

13-year-old Jamarion Lawhorn, the young boy who has been convicted of fatally stabbing a younger boy at a Kentwood playground last August, has been sentenced.

Judge Paul J. Denenfield sentenced the boy to be incarcerated at the Muskegon River Youth Home in Evart, Mich. for the next 8 years (until he turns 21-years-old).  He was given a "blended sentence" which means that he may be moved to an adult prison upon release, but that will be decided by the court at that time.
