WEBER COUNTY, Utah – A man who pleaded guilty earlier this year to two murders that occurred in 2009 is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison after he was given two consecutive sentences.

Earlier this year, Jeremy Valdes pleaded guilty to killing Matthew Roddy and Pamela Knight-Jeffries in 2009 after the pair accused him of stealing prescription drugs. This week, he was sentenced to serve two consecutive terms of 15 years to life.

Because one sentence will begin only after the time for the first sentence is served, the man is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.
