A 22-year-old Kansas City man was sentenced to 45 years in prison for his role in the 2015 robbery and fatal shooting of two men.
Jimmie Verge was sentenced Friday in Jackson County Circuit Court.
A Jackson County jury in March found Verge guilty on two counts of second-degree murder, four counts of armed criminal action and single counts of robbery and assault.

A judge sentenced him to 30 years on each murder and robbery conviction; 25 years on the assault conviction; and 45 years for each armed criminal action conviction.
The sentences will run concurrently, prosecutors said.
Verge was one of two men charged in the shooting deaths of Gerrod H. Woods and Fanandous B. Groves, both 23 and from Kansas City. A third man survived being shot in the face.
Another man charged in the case, Anthony E. Murphy, has yet to go to trial.
Verge and Murphy were accused of taking part in a robbery near East 73rd Street and Wabash Avenue that led to the killings on Dec. 14, 2015.
