A Buffalo man has been convicted in the 2007 murders of two Milton men.
Alan Hall, 28, was sentenced Friday to two consecutive life sentences plus five years.
He faced multiple murder charges for killing Justin Stewart, 29, and Terrell Jennings, 31, on Oct. 29, 2007.
Hall’s uncle had introduced him to the two victims, both alleged cocaine dealers. A purchase was arranged, at which time Hall pulled a gun and shot, without apparent provocation, Stewart at point blank range, according to the Fulton County District Attorney’s office.
Jennings was killed with a single shot to the head as he tried to disarm Hall, the district attorney’s office said. According to his uncle, who called authorities after the incident, Hall also stole a kilo of cocaine from the dead men.
Hall was captured by U.S. Marshals at his home in Buffalo, where he was living following his release from prison just three months before the murders. Authorities say Hall is also a suspect in an unsolved murder case in New York.
