According to The Times Herald, Brendan Pierce, the Norristown man convicted in November of killing 16-year-old Dominique Devlin in July in 2011, was sentenced on Wednesday, Feb. 13, to life in prison.
"I have no doubt, Mr. Pierce, that you planned this murder, committed this murder and it was done for revenge," Judge Thomas C. Branca reportedly said during sentencing. "It was done out of a cold, calculated action."
