Fitzgerald lottery winner killer hears his sentence

FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - A co-conspirator in the January 2016 murder of a Fitzgerald lottery learned his sentence Wednesday in Ben Hill Co. Superior Court.

Wayan Malik Jordan was sentenced to life in prison, an additional life sentence and 15 years all served consecutively.

Wayan Malik Jordan was found guilty on all 14 charges he faced, including malice murder, felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Jordan and six others are accused of killing Craigory Burch shortly after Burch won more than $400,000 on a lottery ticket.

Nathaniel Baker was the first person who went to trial for this case. He was found guilty and convicted last month.

The other five people charged are expected to be tried one at a time at a later date.
