Man gets life sentence for his part in fatal stabbings

BARTOW, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for his part in the fatal stabbings of two women. The Ledger reports that 27-year-old Devonere McCune was sentenced Friday in Polk County. He was convicted last month of second-degree murder. Prosecutors say McCune, Michael Gordon, Terrell Williams and Jovan Lamb robbed an Auburndale pawn shop in January 2015. McCune was arrested after a shootout with police. Responding deputies went to a nearby home and found the bodies of 72-year-old Patricia Moran and her 51-year-old daughter Deborah Royal. Authorities say Williams, Gordon and Lamb were arrested after trying to flee in the victims' car.
