NORFOLK -- A man convicted of shooting and killing a Maury High School football player has been sentenced to life plus 10 years.

On Friday, a judge sentenced Tarek Cherry for the 2009 murder of Charles Humphrey.

Humphrey was 18 and was a senior on the varsity football and basketball teams. He was struck in the head when Cherry fired a bullet into a crowd after a late night party.

Cherry was a minor at the time. He was convicted of first degree murder back in November.
