Boggess sentenced to life without parole

DURHAM -- Life without the possibility of parole -- that's the sentence for Todd Boggess. A Durham County jury found Boggess guilty Friday of first-degree murder. Boggess was convicted for the murder of 17-year-old Wilmington student Danny Pence in 1995. In 1997 Boggess was found guilty and sentenced to death. But the state Supreme Court overturned that decision on a technicality. The jury in the retrial deliberated for three days before finding Boggess guilty a second time.
