HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former Mechanicsburg man will spend life in prison with no chance of parole for the murder of a Harrisburg Area College student.

Isiah Garrett, 23, received the sentence Friday in Dauphin County Court for the shooting death of 18-year-old Kendrell Washington.

Prosecutors said Garrett shot Washington during a robbery near N. 16th and Park streets in November 2010. Washington and a friend had handed over a cell phone to Garrett and two accomplices, but Garrett then forced Washington to the ground and shot him in the head.

Garrett's life sentence for first-degree degree murder will run consecutive to a term of life imprisonment he received last March for a December 2010 murder in Hazleton, which also occurred during a robbery.

Garrett's co-defendants, 22-year-old Dyrelle Beaty and 19-year-old Sayid Hall, both of Harrisburg, each pleaded guilty in March to two counts of robbery and conspiracy and received a sentence of 2-5 years in prison. Charges of first-degree murder against both men were withdrawn.

Beaty and Hall are also awaiting trial for April 2011 shooting incident that left a teenage girl partially paralyzed when she was struck by a stray bullet in the 300 block of Crescent Street.

Both men face charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, and related crimes in that case.
