PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - One of the men accused in the deaths of a wealthy Florida Panhandle couple with nine special needs children has been sentenced to life in prison.

An Escambia County judge sentenced Wayne Coldiron to two life terms Friday after a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder.

Coldiron is one of several people charged in the July 2009 fatal robbery of Bryd and Melanie Billings.
