OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the life prison sentence of a 23-year-old man convicted in the shooting deaths of a young couple at a Tulsa park.

The court handed down the ruling Wednesday to Darren Price, who was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2011 deaths of 18-year-old Carissa Horton and 21-year-old Ethan Nichols. Price was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Prosecutors alleged that Price and another man, 25-year-old Jerard Davis, robbed and killed the pair as the couple was out for a walk. Davis was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of first-degree murder.

Among other things, the court rejected claims by Price that the evidence was insufficient to convict him of murder.
