    “You understand you will never walk the streets again,” Durard asked.

    If Burrell is allowed to live, more than likely he will walk the streets!

    In Tennessee, 1 life term is a minimum of 51 years before being considered for parole. He got 2 life terms. That is 102 years minimum. No, he will not walk the streets again.
