BATTLE CREEK DETECTIVE
(2007-05-25)
(wgvu) - BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A 23-year-old man who's already
serving a life prison sentnece for shooting and killing a Battle
Creek police detective has received a second life sentence for
fatally stabbing a cab driver.
Genail Postley Junior of Battle Creek was sentenced today in
Calhoun County Circuit Court.
He pleaded no contest last month to charges of first-degree
murder and felony murder in the killing two years ago of
66-year-old cab driver Unice Sharp.
Postley was convicted earlier this year on 27 of 28 counts --
including murder charges -- stemming from the May 2005 killing of
Detective LaVern Brann.
He was killed and another detective was shot and wounded when
they went to an apartment building to question Postley about
Sharp's death.
