A New York City barber convicted of murdering a man who took over his failed business has been sentenced to 105 years to life in prison.
He was evicted from his upper Manhattan barbershop after failing to pay rent. Prosecutors say he fumed as he watched the business bustle under new owners.
They say he sued them, demanded money from them and told them ``you will pay in blood'' not long before the October 2005 shooting.
In addition to the new owner, three people were injured. Espinal had maintained he was not the shooter. He told the judge at his sentencing, "I'm innocent.''
