Killer faces family members of victims in courtroom

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) - It was an emotional morning in an Ingham County courtroom as family members of a  murdered man and woman spoke to the person responsible. 

Those "victim impact" statements were given moments before Manuel Pena was sentenced to life in prison. 

He was found guilty last month of premeditated murder and felony murder.

Police and prosecutors say Jeffry Ballor and Kristin Pangman were found dead inside a Meridian Township home in January of last year.

Both had been stabbed multiple times in their heads, necks and faces.
