Allen Boling, 25, was found guilty of capital murder Friday in the beating death of Russell McKinney, 31. Boling was sentenced to life in prison.

Authorities say Boling beat Mckinney to death with a pipe in January of 2011.

During victim impact statements, the victim's father, Glen McKinney, said, "There is a demon in you and you should not be allowed back in the streets. You deserve the death penalty."

"I can't believe you did what you did," said McKinney's mother Anita Clark.

"Being a Christian like I am, I forgive you," she said.

John Gidding, 48, is also charged with capital murder.
