BEL AIR, Md. (AP) — Two Baltimore men have been sentenced to life in prison for killing a man in an Aberdeen motel in 2007.

Mark Christian II, 24, was sentenced on Monday and Michael Brown, 29, was sentenced on Thursday. Both were convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Robert Hemphill.

Hemphill was shot twice in a motel on Aug. 18, 2007 during a robbery attempt. There were no suspects at the time, but the case was reopened in 2010 and a gun recovered from Christian’s vehicle matched a shell casing at the scene of the murder.

DNA that matched Hemphill was found on Brown’s shoe.
