SALISBURY, Md. - A Wicomico County man will serve a life sentence for attempted first-degree murder, a judge ruled Thursday.

Brian Keith Hensley, 43, was sentenced Thursday in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County by Judge Kathleen Beckstead. On Feb. 19, a Wicomico County jury convicted Hensley of attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, armed robbery, CDS possession (cocaine and marijuana), and CDS paraphernalia.

An investigation conducted by the Salisbury Police Department and the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit revealed that on May 16, 2013, Hensley attacked an 18-year-old victim with a vodka bottle while he was asleep in a house on Ohio Avenue. Police determined Hensley fractured the skull of his victim during this attack and robbed the victim of his wallet, CDS and cellphones.

Hensley received concurrent sentences for the CDS offenses.
