NEW ORLEANS - Telly Hankton sentenced to life in prison for the 2008 murder of a man on Claiborne Ave.

Hankton was convicted of killing Darnell Stewart on May 13, 2008 near the intersection of Claiborne Avenue and Louisiana Avenue.

Hankton’s first trial ended in a hung jury, and following that non-decision two women who had given Hankton an alibi for the night of the killing were charged with perjury.
