US teen sentenced to 21 years in jail for killing gay classmate

Brandon McInerney was sentenced to 21 years behind bars on Monday for killing 15-year-old gay classmate Lawrence 'Larry' King in their school's computer lab.

'He feels deeply remorseful and stated repeatedly if he could go back and take back what he did he would do it in a hearbeat,' McInerney's attorney Scott Wippert told the court before sentencing.

McInerney had agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder and one count of voluntary manslaughter and use of a firearm.
