Max Edwin Tutiven, the man who killed a pump attendant while trying to save himself without paying $ 112 worth of gas, will have to spend his life in jail. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole being 16 years old on Wednesday.

Jayesh Prajapati, 44, was killed in September 2012 after he was struck by an SUV whose driver was trying to flee a Shell gas station without paying a $112 gas bill. The gas station was located at Marlee and Roselawn avenues.

Max Tutiven, 44, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder but was found guilty by a jury on Oct. 10.

Prajapati was dragged by the vehicle for more than 70 metres while witnesses yelled at the driver to stop.  – CINEWS
