TORRANCE (AP) — Two gang members have been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for the shooting death of a Southern California shop owner.

The Los Angeles judge called 21-year-old Zecorey Lamont Marcus and 22-year-old Jayvion Terrell Galloway street terrorists who chose to play God when they shot Gardena T-shirt shop owner Hae Sook Roh in May 2008. The Gardena gang members were sentenced Wednesday in a Torrance courtroom.

Jurors last month convicted Galloway and Marcus of first-degree murder with special circumstances for killing the 51-year-old shop owner during a $35 robbery.

The Daily Breeze says Galloway got an extra 61 years for an earlier robbery And Marcus got 38 years for another robbery.
