GRETNA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A Terrytown man who was convicted last week of killing his ex-girlfriend has been sentenced to life in prison. Tory Wilson's punishment was handed down Thursday on his 33rd birthday.

Prosecutors say Wilson killed Stephanie South on Aug. 24, 2012, shooting her more than a dozen times at her apartment while he was on parole for an illegal gun possession.

Wilson denied guilt, saying the four witnesses who identified him as the killer were wrong. A Jefferson Parish jury was unanimous in finding that the witnesses were correct.
