PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A career criminal faces sentencing after being convicted of a 2007 shooting. He was charged with a murder in 2009 while on house arrest for the first shooting.

Defendant Kariem Glenn was on house arrest, awaiting trial for shooting his cousin in a dispute involving ugly family allegations, when prosecutor Scott Gessner says he allegedly went out and committed murder.

“While he was on the monitor, well he cut the bracelet, and was arrested and charged for the homicide of Lonnie Anderson.”

Authorities say Anderson apparently wasn’t the intended target, but he was shot in the head as he tried to run from the gunfire. Glenn is awaiting trial for the murder. But he has now been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for the original shooting.
