ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -- The man convicted of shooting a store clerk in south St. Louis in 2014 has received life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Antonio Muldrew took the life of 32-year-old Ethiopian refugee Abdulrauf Kadir, who left behind a wife and two children.

The jury heard evidence Muldrew lingered at the store for as long as 15 minutes after the shooting, pretending he worked there as Kadir laid on the floor bleeding, so he could collect more money from customers.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt prosecuted the case due to a conflict of interest with the local Circuit Attorney's office. Muldrew was found guilty in January.
