A man accused of murdering Appomattox resident Lisa Simone Henderson in April 2018 has been sentenced to life in prison. 

Marquie Brandon Williams, of Lynchburg, was sentenced today in Campbell County Circuit Court on charges of first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and grand larceny. The total sentence comes to 105 years. 

Williams had pleaded guilty to the charges just a few months ago after initially denying involvement in the crime. 

Campbell County investigators said Henderson had been shot multiple times before police were led to her body by co-defendant Felix Jefferson III, of Lynchburg, who also pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing in the case. 

Henderson's body was found April 10, 2018, in a wooded area of Concord.
