Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Slaying

February 25, 2006 - Posted at 12:48 p.m. CST

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ A Springdale man convicted of

first-degree murder for the slaying of a Fayetteville musician has

been sentenced to life in prison.

Jurors deliberated five hours Friday on a sentence for

24-year-old Fernando Navarro, who had been convicted the day before

of the November 25th, 2004, murder of 41-year-old David Edwards.

Navarro was also convicted on charges of aggravated robbery,

residential burglary and theft of property.

The jury recommended two life sentences, one on the murder

charge and one for accomplice to aggravated robbery.

Chief Deputy Prosecutor John Threet said Navarro demonstrated no

remorse for the slaying.
