BATON ROUGE - A judge sentenced Leandre Bell, the man convicted of killing the brother-in-law of Baton Rouge's former police chief, to life in prison today.

Bell, was convicted of two counts of murder and a host of other charges, including armed robbery.

Leandre Bell was formally sentenced a short while ago in district court in Baton Rouge.

A jury found Bell guilty this past June of killing Christopher Domingue, the brother-in-law of former Police Chief Jeff LeDuff, as well as Erica Turner.

The trial included graphic testimony from coroners as well as testimony from Bell's cousin Farrenton Joshua, who said Bell shot the victims during a robbery.

News 2's Adrian Pittman will have more from today's sentencing starting on News 2 at 4.
