160 Years For Convicted Murderer

Last updated on Tuesday, February 12, 2008

(FORT WAYNE) - One of three Fort Wayne men convicted in a fatal robbery was sentenced to 160 years in prison after jurors convicted him of murder.

22-year-old Antwain Hines was also convicted of being a habitual offender last month. A judge declared a mistrial as jurors were being selected in August. A potential juror then blurted out that Hines had robbed a relative years ago and that she could not be impartial. The judge granted the defense's motion for a mistrial.

Last month, Hines was convicted of robbing and fatally shooting 20-year-old Percy Riley and 21-year-old Derious Fuqua.

Two other men were convicted in the case. One was sentenced to 140 years in prison and the other is awaiting sentencing.
