Guilty plea: 32 years in LSU grad students' deaths
BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge man who pleaded guilty in connection with the killings of two Louisiana State University graduate students has been sentenced to 32 ½ years in prison - the first 30 without parole.
Devin Parker had testified against two men who were acquitted Oct. 7 in the deaths of 33-year-old Kiran Kumar Allam and 31-year-old Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma, both from India.
State District Judge Chip Moore sentenced Parker on Tuesday to 30 years without parole for armed robbery and 2 ½ years as an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder.
Defense attorney Jim Holt says he will ask Moore to reconsider.
