Back in 2017, a North Carolina man won a $10 million dollar lottery prize. Just three years later, the same man was arrested for the murder of a 23-year-old woman and, on Friday, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

 

Michael Todd Hill, 54, was convicted of first-degree murder for the killing of Keonna Graham, 23.

Graham worked for a program that helped people with intellectual disabilities, and later worked as a correctional officer in Burgaw, North Carolina. Graham was living in Navassa, North Carolina at the time of her death with her mother and 10-year-old sister with whom she was incredibly close.

Authorities recovered surveillance footage from the hotel where Graham was killed that showed Hill being the only person in the room with the victim. Hill also confessed to the crime, claiming that Graham had been texting other men while she was at the hotel, which prompted him to shoot her.
