HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A man involved in a double murder in Hartford on New Year’s Day in 2011 has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of release.

WVIT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1T1NziL ) that a Hartford Superior Court judge imposed the life term Friday on 34-year-old Angel Rivera, who was convicted by a jury in March of murder, capital felony and conspiracy.

Authorities say Rivera and a friend, Jose Medina, were involved in the fatal shootings of 24-year-old Lionel Roldan of Manchester and 30-year-old Luis Rivera of Hartford. Angel Rivera and Luis Rivera weren’t related.

Medina also was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of release.

Angel Rivera told police that he and Luis Rivera got into a fistfight at a bar earlier on the night of the killings.
