PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) - A 44-year-old state prisoner has been sentenced to 20 to 23 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder and admitting he set fire to a home to cover up the slayings of a southwestern Michigan couple 13 years ago.

Timothy Andrews pleaded guilty last month in Van Buren County Circuit Court to second-degree murder in a plea deal for killing 66-year-old Carlin Noble and 57-year-old Roberta Noble in their home in Lawton, south of Grand Rapids.

Andrews originally was charged with first-degree murder. He’s been in prison since 2007, serving a 10- to 35-year sentence for perjury in the case.

A judge in Van Buren County Circuit Court in Paw Paw sentenced him Monday.

Ronald Spangler Jr. and Michelle Gogins are serving life without parole on first-degree murder convictions.
