BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings man who stabbed his elderly landlord to death in Miles City has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/Ief7ft ) 38-year-old Scott Austin Price was sentenced Monday for stabbing 78-year-old Ed Martin in the neck Dec. 14, 2015. Price pleaded guilty in September to deliberate homicide.

He also is scheduled to be sentenced later this month on several Missoula County charges including deliberate homicide and attempted deliberate homicide.

In that case, he and his co-defendant, 32-year-old Sarah McKnight, were charged in two separate attacks that took place in Missoula a week after Martin’s death. Price stabbed a woman in a grocery store parking lot and later killed Lonette Keehner, a 56-year-old housekeeper.

Prosecutors say Price was using methamphetamine during the week of the attacks.
