CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — A Charlotte man has been sentenced to
life in prison on the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend, a high
school cheerleader and track star.

A judge sentenced Gary Daniels on Wednesday. Jurors deliberated
for 17 hours over five days before finding the 21-year-old guilty
of first-degree murder.

Authorities say Daniels shot 18-year-old Charney Watt with a
shotgun in March 2009. Prosecutors say the teen was trying to end
her relationship with Daniels when she was killed and had packed
her belongings.

Daniels did not testify during the trial and apologized to
Watt’s family in court on Wednesday. His attorney told jurors the
shooting was an accident.
