AKRON, Ohio– The man convicted of stabbing another man to death outside of Chapel Hill Mall learned his fate on Tuesday.

Deandre Baskerville, 29, of Akron, was sentenced to life in prison. Earlier this month, a Summit County jury found him guilty of two counts of murder, one count of felonious assault and one count of carrying a concealed weapon.

Terrance Rogers, 35, was shopping at the mall with his fiance and two children on Aug. 19 when he got into an argument with Baskerville. According to Summit County prosecutors, Baskerville stabbed the victim in the neck and fled.

Rogers stumbled back into Chapel Hill Mall, where he was pronounced dead.

U.S. Marshals arrested Bakserville in West Virginia more than a month later.
