LEBANON, Mo. (AP) - The man who killed an elderly central Missouri couple in their home has been sentenced to life in prison.

Ronald Blowers was sentenced Tuesday to two life terms for second-degree murder for the December 2012 deaths of 82-year-old Wayne Wells and 71-year-old and Mable Wells.

They were found dead in their home in Ivy Bend, south of Stover. Blowers admitted he was high on methamphetamine when he killed the couple, who died from trauma from a steel pipe and puncture wounds from an unknown object. Wayne Wells was in his wheelchair watching television when he was attacked.

KYTV reports (https://bit.ly/1DSuhB3 ) that Blowers also was sentenced to 50 years each on two counts of armed criminal action and 15 years for burglary. The sentences are to run consecutively.
