William McCorkle, Andre Clinkscale sentenced to more than 100 years each
WASHINGTON (AP/ABC7) — Two District of Columbia men have each been sentenced to more than 100 years in prison for a 2008 triple murder in the Trinidad neighborhood.
William N. McCorkle and Andre Clinkscale, Jr., both 26 years old, were sentenced in D.C. Superior Court on Friday on three counts of first-degree murder and other charges.
They were convicted on Oct. 12.
The shootings occurred early on May 31, 2008 near near the BP gas station in the 1300 block of Florida Avenue NE.
Prosecutors say the shootings followed an argument between McCorkle and one of the victims, Duane Hough.
McCorkle and Clinkscale fired more than three dozen shots at Hough and two other men he was with, Johnny Jeter and Anthony Mincey. Prosecutors say all three victims were unarmed.
The particularly violent shooting left Hough with 17 gunshot wounds, Mincey with 11 and Jeter with nine.
