ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - A man was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a 1998 killing after his death sentence was overturned.

The News-Review of Roseburg reports (https://is.gd/w27MeZ ) that Jesse Stuart Fanus was sentenced Thursday in Douglas County. Fanus had been convicted of aggravated murder and other charges by a Douglas County jury in 1999. The death sentence was overturned by a Marion County post-conviction relief court in 2012.

Prosecutors say Fanus broke into the home of Marion and Edna Carl in 1998, armed with a shotgun. He shot 92-year-old Marion Carl to death.

Marion was a retired Marine Corps major general who was a WWII fighter pilot in the Pacific.
