Texas man gets 50 years for Super Bowl bet death

Prosecutors say a North Texas gang member has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for a killing over an unpaid $40 Super Bowl bet.

A jury in Fort Worth convicted 19-year-old Clevin Earl Brown Jr. of murder and engaging in organized criminal activity. Jurors on Monday ordered 50-year prison terms for each count, with the sentences to be served concurrently.

Investigators say 20-year-old Jarami Thomas was shot and killed in March 2011 in the parking lot of an Arlington convenience store.

Prosecutors say Thomas had placed a bet on the February 2011 game, played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, via Facebook.

The Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.
