SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A Salina man has been sentenced to more than 66 years in prison after being convicted of fatally shooting two men in one week in 2009.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1Cnrru3 ) reports 34-year-old Willie J. Parker was sentenced Tuesday to 66 years and four months in prison. Parker was convicted in May of second-degree murder for the slayings of 24-year-old Alfred Mack Jr. and 22-year-old Justin Letourneau.

Parker had been previously convicted and sentenced to more than 81 years in prison for the killings in an earlier trial. The Kansas Supreme Court reversed those convictions in December, citing errors that occurred in Parker’s trial including the exclusion of certain testimony, faulty jury instruction and inadequate investigation of a juror’s allegation of misconduct by other jurors.
