MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. – Three men will spend the rest of their lives in prison for killing a Clinton Township party store owner.

Darius Diaz-Gaskin, Jomar Robinson and Kenneth Hill were found guilty of Basil Sulaka's death in June. They were all sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without parole.

The 51-year-old Sulaka was killed March 28, 2014, when suspects -- who were masked and armed -- stormed the Moon Lite Party store. Two of the men emptied the cash registers and kept watch on the door while another shot Sulaka in the back with a handgun.

A fourth man, Clinton Grayson, has already been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
