SALT LAKE CITY -- A man who admitted to his role in a gang killing at a West Valley City golf course will spend at least 15 years in prison.

Jeremiah Williams, 27, pleaded guilty to murder in October for the 2009 death of 18-year-old JoJo Brandstatt. Brandstatt was taken to a West Valley golf course at gunpoint, shot three times and left for dead in February of 2009.

Wednesday morning, he was sentenced to 15-years-to-life for his involvement.

Williams was one of four people charged in the crime. In exchange for his plea, two counts of aggravated kidnapping and five counts of aggravated robbery were dropped.

Brandstatt was allegedly killed because he was wearing the wrong color.
