Man who killed friend, burned body sentenced

HILO, Hawaii (AP) - A 21-year-old Big Island man has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for second-degree murder in the shooting death of a friend four years ago. Circuit Judge Glenn Hara on Monday also sentenced Malaki McBride to 20 years for a firearms violation. Hara ruled the sentences must be served consecutively. McBride will have to serve a minimum of 15 years before being considered for parole.

Early on the morning of the 2007 shooting in Nanawale Estates, McBride found his girlfriend having sex in her car with 21-year-old Tyrone Torres. McBride opened the passenger side door and shot Torres in the head with a shotgun. McBride then drove the car to Waa Waa and set it on fire with Torres' body inside.
