COLUMBUS, Ohio — An 18-year-old suspected gang member has been sentenced to nearly 175 years in prison for his role in a quadruple homicide during a robbery at an Ohio home last year.

Jordyn Wade was accused of helping an accomplice rob five people in Columbus, then standing with his gun drawn while the accomplice shot them. One person survived.

A jury convicted Wade in May, and a judge sentenced him Tuesday to 172 ½ years in prison.

Co-defendant Robert Adams Jr. faces the death penalty if convicted during his trial next year. Wade wasn’t eligible for the death penalty because he was a juvenile when the slayings happened.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Wade’s attorney said life without parole wasn’t appropriate given Wade’s age and the fact he didn’t shoot the victims.
