Former Morehouse Student Gets Life in Prison

Published September 1, 2009

A Georgia judge sentenced a former Morehouse College Miles Allen to two life sentences plus 70 years Monday for torturing and murdering a classmate three years ago.

A Clayton County jury convicted the 26-year-old theology student on 11 of 12 counts, including four counts of murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping.

Allen is one of four men charged with kidnapping Morehouse junior Carlnell Walker before torturing him for eight straight hours. Prosecutors had charged them with beating, stabbing and dousing Walker with gasoline before dumping him in a car trunk outside Walker’s Riverdale home.

Allen’s alleged accomplices will be tried later this month, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Allen’s sentence was the maximum under the law.
