Marengo County Circuit Judge Eddie Hardaway followed a jury's recommendation and sentenced former Alabama quarterback Michael Landrum to life in prison without parole on Wednesday.

The 43-year-old Landrum was convicted March 5 in the murder-for-hire deaths of his three-year-old daughter and her grandmother. Prosecutors said he hired Jeffrey Napier to kill Mikayla Little and 52-year-old Ida Little in August 2003.

Napier, testifying for the state, told jurors that Landrum offered him $1,000 for the killings. The 23-year-old Napier pleaded guilty to the murders last April.

Landrum became the first black quarterback to play at Alabama when he was inserted into the game as a reserve against Vanderbilt on Sept. 29, 1979. Later, he became a disc jockey who worked in west Alabama and called himself "Doctor Rock."
