TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- One of the people convicted of killing a Pierce County man who had listed a ring for sale on Craigslist was given a 100-year prison sentence Tuesday in Tacoma.

The 22-year-old Joshua N. Reese was convicted June 7 of murder, burglary, robbery and assault for his role in the April 2010 home invasion attack in Edgewood where Jim Sanders was fatally shot.

Co-defendants Kiyoshi Higashi and Amanda Knight were convicted earlier this year. Higashi was sentenced to 124 years in prison and Knight to 71 years.

The News Tribune reports the trial for Clabon Berniard is set for later this year.
