FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A man convicted of killing his stepfather and trying to kill his mother in Washington County has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1YKa64X ) reports that 27-year-old Samuel Hill was sentenced Thursday. Hill received life in prison for a first-degree murder charge and 30 years in prison for an attempted first-degree murder charge.

The two sentences will run consecutively.

Prosecutors say Hill shot 61-year-old Allen Hill six times and attempted to shoot his mother on Aug. 20, 2014, at a home near Elkins.
