LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — (Eds. note: The video attached is from the initial arrest in July 2020.)

A Sherwood man has been sentenced to serve 50 years in prison after pleading guilty for the murder of a transgender teen in June 2020.

According to court documents, prosecutors say 17-year-old Brayla Stone was shot and killed by Trevone Miller to "keep Ms. Stone from revealing that they were in a sexual relationship."

Stone's body was found by police after a car was found on a walking path in Sherwood off Gap Creek Drive.

Miller, who is now 20, was arrested about a week later and charged with murder.

He will serve a 10-year and 40-year sentence consecutively for first degree murder and a fire enhancement charge.
