SHERWOOD, Ark. (KARK) – A man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for killing a transgender teen.

Trevone Miller, who was 18 at the time of the homicide, has been convicted in the killing of Brayla Stone. He was convicted on a first-degree murder and a firearm enhancement charges.

Prosecutors say Miller killed Stone so she would not reveal they were in a sexual relationship.
