Habitual Criminal Gets 100 Years for Mich. Police Murder

October 27, 2011  | 

A judge has handed a Detroit man a sentence of 100-150 years for fatally shooting a cop during a home-invasion sting in January.

Terry Bowling, a habitual criminal, showed no reaction as Oakland County Circuit Judge Michael Warren sentenced him on Wednesday, saying Bowling was a drug addict who had "utter disregard for the law, a selfish man unwilling or unable to live in a civilized world," reports the Detroit Free Press.

Livonia (Mich.) Police Officer Larry Nehasil died during a shootout Jan. 17. Bowling and his brother, David, were committing a string of home invasions in January and were under surveillance by Livonia police when they broke into a home. Nehasil and David Bowling died in a shootout in the backyard.
