BOLIVIA, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man who won a $10 million lottery prize in 2017 has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the 2020 fatal shooting of his girlfriend.
The News & Observer reports that 54-year-old Michael Todd Hill was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced Friday in the killing of 23-year-old Keonna Graham.
Graham was reported missing on July 20, 2020. She was later found dead in a hotel with a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Prosecutors said Hill confessed to killing Graham.
Hill won $10 million from a scratch-off ticket in August 2017, according to reports.
