AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Deandre Baskerville, 29, of Mineola Street in Akron, was sentenced to life in prison for stabbing Terrance Rogers to death outside Akron’s Chapel Hill Mall.

A jury found Baskerville guilty of two counts of murder, felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon on February 5.

Rogers, 35, was shopping at Chapel Hill Mall with his fiancé and their two children in August of last year when he got into an argument with Baskerville inside the mall. The two men continued arguing outside where Baskerville stabbed Rogers in the neck. Rogers stumbled back inside the mall where he eventually died.

Baskerville escaped, and was captured by U.S. Marshals on September 23, 2015 in West Virginia.

Baskerville will be eligible for parole after 15 years.
