- A teenager convicted of orchestrating an attack on a middle school classmate who was soaked in alcohol and lit ablaze was sentenced to 11 years in prison Thursday even as he continued to insist his innocence.

That gun, a Walther PPK handgun, was used in the murder of Tim Bosma , who Millard and Mark Smich killed in 2013 after taking Bosma's truck on a test drive.

In a text exchange following the sale, Millard asked Ward-Jackson if the gun was "clean," and later texted that by the time he would return the weapon, "she'll be a dirty girl."

"That's fine lol," Ward-Jackson responded. "I can change her print."

It was a sign Ward-Jackson was "well entrenched" in the illegal firearms market, Kelly said in her decision.

"He knew that one of the firearms would be used for a criminal purpose," she added.

Another weapon sold to Millard, a Smith & Wesson revolver, was found near the body of Millard's father, Wayne Millard, in 2012. That death was initially ruled a suicide, but Dellen Millard has since been charged with first-degree murder and is awaiting trial this spring.
