LA PLATA, Md. (AP) - A man already serving a 45-year prison sentence for killing a cab driver has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of another slaying.

Charles County State’s Attorney Tony Covington says 22-year-old Joshua Mebane was sentenced Friday to two consecutive life sentences plus 20 years in prison.

Mebane was convicted of shooting a woman and her husband as they walked their dog in Waldorf in October 2012. Teresa Bass was killed and her husband, Jerry Bass, was critically wounded but survived.

Officials say less than two weeks after the Waldorf shooting, Mebane killed 44-year-old cab driver Quadar Muhammad in Washington. Mebane was sentenced to 45 years in prison for Muhammad’s slaying.
