Anthony Darrell Thomas has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2003 beating death of a 32-year-old Gulfport man.

Thomas was convicted Wednesday in Harrison County Circuit Court for the murder of Adrian Terrell Robinson.

Authorities say Robinson was beaten with an oak table leg during an argument on April 24, 2003. His body was found three days later in the woods along a Gulfport street. Robinson died of his injuries in less than three months.
