Man gets life in prison for death of Illinois college student (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.
