A murder conviction was upheld in Georgia Supreme Court Monday from a murder ten years ago.

Thaddeus Porter is convicted of killing Willie Clay in 2002.

Porter will now serve a life sentence for this conviction. The shooting occurred during a robbery at Eagle Cleaners on Victory Drive. Authorities say the victim Willie Clay was robbed and beaten before being shot. 

Porter's defense attorney argued the other two suspects pinned the shooting on Porter to escape justice.
