GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A parolee who killed two people in Harrison County when he was 18 has been sentenced to prison again, this time for distributing cocaine and marijuana in Gulfport.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Id9jUB ) a judge sentenced 43-year-old George Andrew Johnson to 30 years in prison Tuesday.

On May 21, Johnson pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute cocaine and two counts of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Assistant District Attorney Robert McCormick says Johnson was under surveillance at his apartment before his arrest June 17, 2014.

In December 1991, a jury convicted Johnson in the December 1989 killings of 31-year-old Vacey Leon Clark and 19-year-old Rosemary Graves.

According to the state Department of Corrections, Johnson was released from prison on parole in April 2011.
