Eighteen-year sentence for Turkish teen who murdered Catholic priest


A Turkish teen has been sentenced for killing a priest, the Associated Press reports.

The killing took place last year during a worldwide controversy over derogatory caricatures of Mohammed that were published in European newspapers.  The priest was killed while he was knelt in prayer.

The teen was sentenced to eighteen years but is expected to serve only ten.
