Ware, who did not actually fire the kill shots, will receive life in prison without parole. He was also found guilty of armed robbery and possession of a gun during commission of a crime.
On the night of July 25, 2009, Ware robbed Forrest at gunpoint, taking the boxer’s gold championship ring and Rolex watch. Forrest would produce his own handgun and give chase to Ware, who ran and hid in a nearby apartment building. After giving up the chase, Forrest started to make his way back to his car when he was shot twice in the back by co-defendant Charman Sinkfield, who then walked up to the fallen fighter and unloaded eight more shots. After the murder, Sinkfield, Ware, and a third co-defendant, Jquante Crews, would flee the scene of the crime in Crews’ car.
Attorneys will prosecute the triggerman, Sinkfield, next and will seek the death penalty.
