HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A 66-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for the 2008 slayings of his brother and sister-in-law in their Livingston County home.

A circuit court jury on Jan. 28 found Jerome Kowalski guilty of 2 counts of first-degree murder.

On Tuesday, Judge Theresa Brennan gave Kowalski the mandatory sentence under Michigan law for first-degree murder.

Sixty-5-year-old Richard and 58-year-old Brenda Kowalski were found shot to death on May 1, 2008, at their home in Oceola Township, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.

Jerome Kowalski has both admitted and denied killing his brother and sister-in-law. Before Tuesday's sentencing, he told the judge he's innocent and "the killer is still out there."
