HENDERSON — Authorities completed the murder prosecution of Marcus Tyrell Hargrove on Monday, with Superior Court Judge Cindy Sturges giving him a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

“Mr. Sheriff, he’s in your custody,” Sturges said after ruling that there were no aggravating or mitigating factors at issue in the decision following Hargrove’s acceptance of a plea agreement last week that took a potential death penalty off the table.
