A Butler, Ala., man has been sentenced on two charges of murder in Sumter County.
Ernest Parker entered a guilty plea this week and was sentenced to two life terms.
38-year-old Marian Parker and her 26-year-old niece, Leanorma Garcia, were found shot to death on Roger Ward Road in southern Sumter County in February 2008.
When the shootings occurred, officials say Parker was inside a vehicle he had borrowed, along with the two shooting victims and his 4-year-old stepdaughter.
Investigators say he left the scene and staged an accident to try to cover up the crime.
