ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A 21-year-old South Carolina man who was convicted in the slaying of a University of Michigan medical student during a robbery near the school's campus is scheduled to be sentenced.

Joei Jordan faces a mandatory penalty of life in prison without parole at a hearing on Wednesday in Ann Arbor. A jury in January found the Sumter, South Carolina, man guilty of first-degree felony murder, home invasion and conspiracy to commit home invasion.

Twenty-five-year-old Paul DeWolf was attending medical school on an Air Force scholarship when he was shot during a 2013 robbery at the medical fraternity where he lived.

Dajeon Franklin and Shaquille Jones, both 22, were convicted earlier. Franklin is serving life without parole for first-degree murder. Jones is serving 25 to 50 years for second-degree murder.
