It’s hard to spend $10 from prison. But that’s what one North Carolina man will face. Michael Todd Hill won a $10 million lottery scratch-off prize in 2017. But just 5 years later Hill has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. This comes after he was charged with the 2020 fatal shooting of his girlfriend.

According to the News & Observer, the 54-year-old Leland man was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced Friday. He is charged with the killing of 23-year-old Keonna Graham. Graham was found dead in a hotel room, shot in the back of the head after she was reported missing on July 20, 2020.

Hill eventually confessed to shooting Graham after she had been texting with other men. Winning the lottery clearly can’t solve all your problems.
