  SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) _ A South Bend teenager who angered a judge by smirking during his sentencing for killing a 16-year-old boy has received the maximum time behind bars allowed under a plea agreement.
  St. Joseph Superior Court Judge Jane Woodward Miller chastised 18-year-old Damontray Lovelady during Tuesday's hearing to determine his punishment for firing shots at a group of teenagers last September. Jhaelon Johnson died in the shooting.
  Lovelady has pleaded guilty to a murder charge.
  The South Bend Tribune reports Lovelady's punishment was capped at 50 years under a plea agreement reached with the state. 
  Lovelady's attorney asked for the minimum sentence of 45 years with five years of probation.
  Woodward Miller said Lovelady's smirk showed a lack of remorse and sentenced him to the maximum.
