A South Carolina man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for murder in a killing where an investigator says he asked for a copy of the autopsy photo of the victim's body.

Prosecutors said a jury convicted 27-year-old Demorris Andrews of murder and armed robbery for the October 2016 shooting of 57-year-old Barry Warren as he robbed him of drugs and money.

Greenwood Police investigator Matt Blackwell testified that Andrews denied killing Warren, but asked for a copy of the autopsy photo he had.

Blackwell says he told Andrews that was sick.

Solicitor David Stumbo said in a statement that Andrews confessed to the killing to an inmate who testified against him and other witnesses say he was at Warren's home.
