A judge sentenced the three men convicted of murdering South African reggae star Lucky Dube to life in prison, The Associated Press reports. Dube was shot to death in 2007 when the men attempted to carjack him. The suspects, Sifiso Mhlanga, Mbuti Mabe and Julius Gxowa, were all convicted of the killing Tuesday. Not too long before the verdict was announced, Mabe and Mhlanga attempted to escape from court. Dube’s son, Thokozani, wept in court as the sentences were announced. Thokozani was in the car with his father when he was gunned down. Dube’s family and others got together and sang South Africa’s national anthem outside of the courthouse afterward. Dube was the nation’s top-selling reggae artist and recorded 22 albums.
