TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Tulsa County judge has given a man consecutive life imprisonment terms for the 2008 fatal shootings of his mother and her niece.
District Judge Tom Gillert sentenced Brandon Johnson on Monday.
Johnson pleaded guilty Feb. 9 to two counts of first-degree murder for the Sept. 14, 2008, killings of Tracy Johnson, and her niece, Jessica Lewallen.
Court records show police found the women at Tracy Johnson's home after Brandon Johnson called 911.
Investigators say he initially told them he was at his residence next door when he heard gunshots, ran to his mother's house with his pistol and found her dead. Officers say he later told them he shot both women after his mother shot at him.
His attorney, Julie Ball, couldn't be reached.
