JOLIET, Illinois — A judge has sentenced a 26-year-old Joliet man to life in prison in a grisly 2013 double murder.
The (Joliet) Herald-News reports (http://bit.ly/1wn2961 ) Will County Judge Gerald Kinney imposed the sentence Wednesday on Joshua Miner in Joliet.
The life sentence was mandatory after Miner was convicted last month in the deaths of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins. Kinney says he found it "impossible to comprehend" that Miner had taken part in the strangulation deaths of the two 22-year-old men for nothing more than "pocket change, cigarettes and drugs."
Last week, 20-year-old Bethany McKee was also sentence to life in prison. Previously a third suspect pleaded guilty to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death in exchange for a 10-year prison term. A fourth suspect is awaiting trial.
