ESTILL, SC (WTOC) -

A 29-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison for the May 2016 shooting death of a woman in Estill. 

A Hampton County jury deliberated for just 30 minutes before finding Gregory Sanders guilty. Witnesses say they saw Sanders shoot 20-year-old Tyhira Herrington in the head at the intersection of Grayson Street and Lawton Avenue. Police found him a short time later with the murder weapon. 

In addition to the life sentence, Sanders got five years for a weapons charge.
