OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the life prison sentences of a 23-year-old man convicted of two counts of murder for the fatal shootings of a rival and an innocent bystander who was shopping with his daughter.

The court handed down the decision Thursday in the case of Willie Wise, who was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder by a jury in Tulsa County that sentenced him to life in prison without parole on each count.

Wise was convicted of the July 12, 2012, shooting death of 34-year-old Scott Norman at a Best Buy store in Tulsa’s midtown in what authorities said was a gang-related crime. Also killed in the shooting was 58-year-old Graydon Brown, who was inside the store shopping for DVDs with his 10-year-old daughter.
