Illinois man sentenced to life in prison for double murder

JOLIET - An Illinois man has been sentenced to life in prison for his role in a 2013 double murder.

Joshua Miner, 26, received a mandatory life sentence on Wednesday after being convicted last month in the deaths of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins, both 22.

The judge who imposed the sentence on Miner, Will County Judge Gerald Kinney, says he found it "impossible to comprehend" that Miner took part in the double murder for nothing more than "pocket change, cigarettes, and drugs."

Bethany McKee, 20, was also sentenced to life in prison for her part in the deaths of Rankins and Glover.  A third suspect pleaded guilty to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death, receiving a 10-year prison sentence in return.  A fourth suspect is currently awaiting trial.
