INDIANAPOLIS -- Peter Hutchings Jr. was sentenced to 75 years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to the November 2015 murder of delivery driver Mark Miller on the east side.

Hutchings appeared before Judge Lisa Borges to enter his plea of guilty to murder and being a felon carrying a handgun. He also accepted a habitual violent offender enhancement, which added 20 years to what otherwise would have been a 55-year sentence.

Miller, 27, was working as a driver for China King and was making his last delivery of the night when he was shot and killed in the 2200 block of Windsong Drive.

Hutchings’ girlfriend at the time, then-17-year-old Terri Williams, was also charged and agreed in September 2016 to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery and carrying a handgun without a license. A sentencing hearing for Williams was scheduled for September 27.
