FRESNO, Calif. (AP) _ A former criminal law student has been
sentenced to life in a California prison for killing one man and
wounding two others in a dispute over a Sony PlayStation console.

Jonquel Brooks was sentenced Friday in Fresno County Superior Court. He asked for forgiveness from relatives of the man he shot.

Police said Brooks killed 19-year-old Brant Daniels and wounded his friends in May 2007. They had apparently gone to Brooks' apartment to look for their stolen PlayStation.

Brooks was a freshman at California State University, Fresno, at the time.

At his trial, Brooks said he acted in self-defense because he feared they were going to attack him.

However, a jury found him guilty in April of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
