Life Sentences For Killer of 7-Eleven Clerk

A former Columbia man received two consecutive life sentences for the 2007 deaths of a Running Brook 7-Eleven clerk and later an acquaintance, according to the ExploreHoward blog.

Citing the “heinous nature” of the crimes, Judge Diane Leasure sentenced Charles David Richardson, 25, formerly of Brook Way in Columbia, for the murders of 7-Eleven clerk Alevtina Zhilina on April 26, 2007 and Trae Allen on May 20, 2007.

Leasure described the crimes as calculated and cold-hearted. “In each case he showed a complete disregard for human life,” she said in handing down the sentence.
