Riverton, WY (AP) The youngest defendant in the case of a double homicide in Hudson was sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison Thursday in Lander District Court.
The Ranger reports that Jude Blackburn pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in January as his family members and relatives of Eric Clinton Likes and Elva Charlotte Quiver watched.
Blackburn was among five people charged in the deaths of Likes and his girlfriend, Elva Quiver, in November 2011.
The four other defendants accused in the slayings and robbery pleaded guilty and have already been sentenced.
Blackburn was 15 at the time of the slayings. His case had been delayed as his attorneys tried to get the case moved to juvenile court and have him deemed unfit to stand trial.
