A member of the 2003 LSU national championship team has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for shooting a woman in the head at a truck stop casino in 2011.

Officials said Demetri Robinson, 32, pleaded guilty in August 2014 to three counts of attempted second-degree murder. District Judge Robin Free sentenced him to 50 years on each count, to be served concurrently.
