The Tamale High Court, presided over by Mr Justice Edward Apenkwah, sentenced the two students, Kwame Dogyi and Obio Akwasi, who are cousins, after the jury had returned a unanimous verdict of guilty of conspiracy to commit crime, to wit murder.
They murdered the 64-year Pastor Ebenezer Ocran in cold blood at his residence at Kumbuyii, near Tamale, on the Tamale-Kumbungu road on November 9, 2017.
They took away his Toyota Highlander vehicle, which Dogyi gave to a sprayer at the Tamale Industrial Area to sell at GHS10,000.
