A jury Wednesday sentenced a man to life in prison for murdering a homeless man over a one dollar bill.

Carlos Fernandez, 19, will be eligible for parole in 30 years. Police say he and his friends jumped 32-year-old Pedros Ramos along Hepmstead Highway last year, shot him, then stole the $1 bill he was carrying.

Marilyn Villareal, 18 and Michael Correa, 17, and a juvenile suspect who is a 16-year-old girl were also charged in the case.
