135-year sentence in Indianapolis cookout shooting
Man gets 135 years in prison in fatal shooting of 2 at Indianapolis birthday cookout
By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' A man convicted of murder in a shooting at an Indianapolis birthday cookout has been sentenced to 135 years in prison.

A Marion County judge ordered the sentence against Damion Martin on Wednesday.

Authorities said two men opened fire at the August 2010 gathering on the city's near west side, probably in retaliation for a killing a year earlier. The 37-year-old woman hosting the party and a 54-year-old man were killed. Six others were injured.



A jury convicted Martin on two murder counts and other charges.

Another man was acquitted of charges in the attack, and jurors couldn't reach a verdict on murder charges against a third man.

Prosecutor's office spokeswoman Brienne Delaney tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/Kh4F6u ) that the office intends to retry Antwan Williams in the case.
