CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - A Corinth man, who pleaded guilty in the deaths of two brothers found in their burned home, has received two life sentences.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1vGz7la) 28-year-old Sirdon Greer pleaded guilty to the deaths of 67-year-old James Copeland and 64-year-old Jerry Copeland, who shared a home in Corinth. Officials say their bodies were found in February after a fire destroyed the home, and they were both found to have been shot in the head before the house was set on fire.

Circuit Judge Jim Pounds sentenced Greer in Alcorn County Circuit Court on Monday.

In addition to the two life sentences on the two murder charges, Greer was sentenced to 20 years on the arson charge, with 10 years suspended, to be served after the life sentences.
