They will serve a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. They were sentenced by Genesee Circuit Court Judge Brian Pickell after a trial that lasted several weeks.

Calvin Munerlyn cause of death
At the time of the fatal 2020 incident, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer had an executive order requiring all store employees and customers to wear face coverings due to the rise of the COVID-19 virus.
Sharmel and her daughter arrived at the Family Dollar in North Flint around 1:40 p.m. May 1st. Although Sharmel was wearing a mask, her daughter was not, according to an earlier news release from Genesee County Attorney David Leyton. Munerlyn, 43, did not let the mother-daughter pair into the store because they would have been in violation of the mandate.
When Munerlyn told Sharmel to leave the store and asked the cashier not to wait on her, Sharmel allegedly began yelling and spitting at the guard before leaving. About 20 minutes later, Sharmel’s husband and son arrived at the store, where Bishop shot Munerlyn in the back of the head.
Police who arrived at the scene found Munerlyn “lying on the ground unconscious and bleeding from the head”. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Leyton said in a statement at the time that Munerlyn was simply doing his job, calling the security guard’s death “senseless and tragic.”
Munerlyn’s wife previously told MLive.com that she had worked in security for almost 30 years and that she had been employed at Family Dollar for about a year before he was killed.
The page describes Munerlyn as “a hard-working father and husband who lost his life while doing his job securing the place of business and asking all customers to wear a mask for his own safety and the safety of others.”Read More….
