WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina man has been sentenced to at least 25 years in prison for the 2016 shooting death of two of his neighbors.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports Forsyth Superior Court Judge David Hall said 33-year-old Zachary Wilson Hobbs could serve up to 31 years for the June 2016 shooting deaths of 37-year-old Steven Richard Salsman and his girlfriend, 33-year-old Meghann Rae Stubbs.

Hall gave Hobbs credit for spending nearly 18 months in jail as he awaited his court hearing. Hobbs will be eligible for parole after he serves the minimum sentence.

A grand jury indicted Hobbs on Monday for two counts of second-degree murder.

Assistant District Attorney Sara Loebner said the shootings stemmed from an argument between Hobbs and three others which started three days earlier.
