Lawrence Jones, a New York man, was sentenced on Friday the 10th of July after murdering 18-year-old Isaiah Roberts for flirting with his wife on a bus.

On May 25, 2012 Roberts was lured to the scene of the crime by someone associated with Jones, where he was confronted by Jones for his alleged flirtation with his wife.

The teen, who was an aspiring architect originally from Trinidad, engaged in an argument with Jones. Then Jones pulled out a gun and Roberts attempted to run away but was shot in the back. When police arrived on the scene, he was lying face-down on the street.

Jones has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
