DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A man convicted of a 2008 fatal stabbing has been sentenced to death.

A Volusia County judge handed down 28-year-old Doug Blaine Matthews' sentence Thursday, following a jury's recommendation.

Matthews was convicted in May of first-degree murder for the death of Kirk Zoeller and manslaughter for the death of Donna Trujillo.

He was also convicted of armed burglary.

Authorities say Matthews fatally stabbed Zoeller and Trujillo during a robbery at Trujillo's apartment in February 2008.
