A Louisiana man will be formally sentenced to life in prison later this month following his conviction in the 2013 double-murder of a couple in their suburban New Orleans apartment.
The Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office says 27-year-old Melvin Miller of Baton Rouge was convicted Wednesday on two second-degree murder counts.
The verdict came seven years to the day after 22-year-old Akeem Boudreaux and 26-year-old Milan Williams were shot to death in their apartment.
Prosecutors said Miller had traveled to Metairie from Baton Rouge by bus but returned to Baton Rouge in Williams’car.
Sentencing is set for Feb. 20.
