  Former Lions receiver Titus Young sentenced to four years in prison Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been sentenced to four years in prison in a 2016 assault case. Young, 27, was arrested in January 2016 for allegedly participating in a street fight in Los Angeles. He pleaded no contest to a battery charge and sentenced to four years in a California prison. Young was a promising young player for Detroit in 2011 and 2012 but on-field and off-field concerns cut his career short. He was involved in multiple on-field skirmishes with opponents and purposefully disobeyed coaches' instructions during a 2012 game against the Packers before getting into an altercation with his position coach. • From 2013: Where is Titus Young? Young was released by the Lions in February 2013 and claimed by the Rams on waivers, though he was released again less than two weeks later.

Louie, who lived in Vancouver, was killed in Penticton while visiting friends and family for the holidays in January 2015.

She died after being bludgeoned with a crowbar 26 times. During the trial, Robotti admitted to delivering the blows that killed Louie, saying that an argument had turned violent.

Robotti's lawyer maintained their client had been acting in self defence.

During the trial, court heard that tensions between the two women — centred mostly around the care of Louie's three-year-old son — were high.

After the sentencing on Tuesday, Louie's uncle said life in prison wasn't enough.

"To me, I guess this is a lesson in 'murder 101': Cover your tracks, go with a lawyer to turn yourself in and get as light a sentence as possible," Dan Wilson said.

Wilson said his family is now focusing on caring for Louie's son.

In court, the 67-year-old apologized for the pain she brought Louie's family and said she wished things had ended differently.
