Man gets life in prison for death of Illinois college student
CLAYTON, Mo. (WICS) —
A St. Louis man was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without parole for killing an Illinois college student.
Michael Gordon was convicted of first-degree murder in October for the 2015 shooting death of nineteen-year-old Taylor Clark.
Clark was a sophomore at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and was trying to sell a sports car on craigslist.
He arranged to meet Gordon in Hazelwood, Missouri, behind a truck training school where Gordon worked.
Police say Clark was shot once and that they found his body hidden in the woods nearby.
