Tennessee man convicted in killing of pawn shop owner

A Tennessee man has been sentenced to life in prison for the fatal shooting of a pawn shop owner more than five years ago.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Monday that 35-year-old Charles Griffen was sentenced by a Criminal Court judge after Griffen was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 56-year-old Virak Hean.

An obituary says Hean was born in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
