Judge sentences convicted defendant in cop case


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — A judge has sentenced the man convicted of shooting an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office major.

Friday morning, Keonta Prince, 20, was formally sentenced for his role in the shooting of OCSO Maj. John Waldenville. Prince received two life sentences of which he must serve at least 85 percent of 25 years.

In May 2011, Waldenville was working an off duty job in Stockyard City when two men ambushed him and shot Waldenville in the head. The two then stole a deposit the major was carrying. Waldenville survived the attack.

In February, Christopher Baker, 30, the convicted trigger man, received a sentence of life plus 30 years.
