    Marquise Brooks, 23, was sentenced to life in prison for the death of a Fort Worth man during a home invasion robbery.

    A 23-year-old Fort Worth man has been convicted of capital murder in the death of a man during a 2011 home invasion robbery.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Marquise Brooks was automatically sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole after his conviction Thursday. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

    Kevan Dunlop, 25, was found dead in a closet of a Fort Worth apartment in January 2011.

    Prosecutors say Dunlop and three friends were playing a video game when four men burst in. At least two intruders started shooting.

    Two of Dunlop's friends were seriously wounded. The third broke a leg jumping from a second-story window.

    A co-defendant who pleaded guilty to murder is serving a 35-year sentence. Courts records show two others are awaiting trial.
