[Trevell Coleman] was sentenced this morning to 15 years prison for a two-decade old fatal gunpoint mugging -- a cold-case murder that was only solved when he walked into a Harlem precinct two years ago, turning himself in so he could square himself, he has explained, with God....
"He's gotten the scorn of other inmates, who called him stupid -- 'Look what happened when you open your mouth,'" [his lawyer, Anthony Ricco] said. "His wife questioned him -- 'Trevell, what about us?'"
Coleman and his wife were raising twin sons of kindergarten age. On the day of his April verdict, the wife -- who had urged Coleman not to confess -- had wondered to the lawyer about how the boys will manage now, without their father.
"My hope is that their sons will grow up to be as proud of their father as boys can ever be, for fixing what he did," Ricco said. "They will have a father who has honor."

"... only to find out that his victim had died and that he had turned himself in for murder."
