Jahmell Crockam watches Lakewood Patrolman Christopher Matlosz's fiancee deliver her victim impact statement in State Superior Court in Toms River, N.J., Thursday for his sentencing on the murder of Lakewood Patrolman Christopher Matlosz on Thursday, March 22, 2012. Superior Court Judge Wendel Daniels sentenced Crockam, 20, to prison for life without the possibility of parole. It was a sentence mandated by the law because the jury had found Crockam killed Matlosz due to his status as a police officer performing his official duties. The judge also tacked an extra seven years for a weapons offense onto Crockam's life sentence. (AP Photo/The Asbury Park Press, Thomas P. Costello, Pool)
