Maryland State Trooper Wesley Brown was killed in 2010.

A man found guilty of shooting an off-duty Maryland state trooper to death will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Cyril Cornelius Williams was convicted in February of first-degree murder in the June 2010 death of Trooper Wesley Brown. Brown was moonlighting as a part-time security guard at an Applebee's in Forestville. Prosecutors say Brown had Williams kicked out of the restaurant for being disruptive, and Williams exacted revenge by retrieving a gun, returning to the restaurant and killing the off-duty trooper.

In a Prince George's County courtroom this morning, Williams was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole, plus 25 years.
