Dawson -- A New Jersey man gets three life sentences for a 2004 murder in Terrell County.
Thirty-six-year-old Kenneth Ponder was convicted of killing 33-year-old Terry Crawford. Crawford was gunned down in front of his girlfriend's home three years ago. The three life terms will be served concurrently, followed by an additional 15 years.
Toris Gilyard was found guilty on the same charges two years ago and is serving a life sentence plus 25 years.
