Pritchett was formally sentenced this afternoon by Circuit Judge Ray Grubbs-- who imposed the sentence set by the jury.
The 35- year old was convicted in April of first degree murder in the death of Estel Singleton.
His attorneys are appealing the conviction.
They say Pritchett is slightly mentally retarded and that information concerning his condition was excluded at trial.
His attorneys contend such evidence would have helped the jury evaluate the reliability of his alleged confession to police.
