A Greenbelt man who murdered a teenage girl in an argument over tattoo ink was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole, Prince George’s prosecutors said.
In September, a Circuit Court jury convicted Estep of first-degree murder for the killing of Jericka Chambers, 16, of Landover.
According to prosecutors and police, Chambers had tattoo ink which Estep wanted. Estep took the ink away, and when Chambers tried to get it back, Estep took out a gun he was hiding under his clothes and shot her in the head, authorities said.
“The indifference to life which cost this young woman her life is wretched and intolerable,” Alsobrooks said. “She was killed over something as inconsequential as tattoo ink.”
