Inmate’s term is reduced

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the prison sentence of a 19-year-old man convicted of first-degree murder. The court handed down the ruling Wednesday against Schiavone Anderson. He was found guilty in Muskogee County and a jury recommended he serve life in prison. But the judge suspended all but 20 years of the sentence. Anderson was convicted in the shooting death of Roshun English, 35, on Nov. 11, 2011.
