Cole County Circuit Judge Daniel Green sentenced Jeffery Millens to life in prison on Wednesday after he was convicted of murder in October.

Millens is accused of killing 23-year-old Quonterio Davis in the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2017.

Online court records say Millens was sentenced to life in prison on a charge of second-degree murder. He was also sentenced to 10 years in prison on a count each of armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm -- court documents said Millens will serve all three sentences consecutively.

Cole County Prosecuting Attorney Locke Thompson said in a release, "No incarceration can replace the absence of one of our fellow citizens. The office of the prosecuting attorney sends its condolences to the family of Quonterio Davis of Jefferson City, aged 23, for his brutal murder."

Witnesses told police Millens and Davis had gotten into a fight at a party and that Millens shot the other man multiple times.
