COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two men convicted of a double murder during a 2017 home invasion at an Ohio apartment complex have been sentenced to back-to-back life terms without possibility of parole.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Brown imposed the sentence Thursday on 44-year-old Milton Moore II and 38-year-old Desmond Webster. The two were convicted last month of aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, kidnapping and felonious assault, all with gun specifications.
The judge also imposed an additional 30 years on each defendant on top of the life terms for the gun specifications.
The defendants were suspected in the slayings of 19-year-old Abdul Yussef and 20-year-old Mohamed Ali Mohamed during a July 2017 home invasion in Columbus that lasted nearly 10 hours. A third occupant was pistol-whipped and a woman who lived in an apartment below was wounded by bullets fired through her ceiling.
Two co-defendants who testified pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in exchange for recommended 15-year sentences.
