ANN ARBOR, Michigan — A 21-year-old South Carolina man has apologized to the family of a slain University of Michigan medical student before getting a no-parole sentence for murder.

Joei Jordan appeared in Washtenaw County court on Wednesday, the last of three young men to be sentenced in the fatal shooting of Paul DeWolf in 2013.

A jury in January convicted the Sumter, South Carolina, man of first-degree felony murder, home invasion and conspiracy. Jordan's life sentence with no chance for parole was mandatory.

The 25-year-old DeWolf was attending medical school on an Air Force scholarship when he was shot during a robbery at a medical fraternity near campus.

Dajeon Franklin also is serving a no-parole sentence. Shaquille Jones is serving at least 25 years in prison for second-degree murder. They're 22.
