TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- A man convicted of fatally stabbing two men who had hired him as their caregiver in the Tucson area has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Roosevelt Williams was accused of living with the two corpses and using their debit cards for days after the October 2010 killings.
The 40-year-old Williams was sentenced Friday to consecutive 20-year terms, but will receive about four years of time served.
A jury found Williams guilty of two counts of second-degree murder for the killings of 51-year-old John Parson and 71-year-old Robert E. Days.
Pima County Attorney Rick Unklesbay says Williams killed the victims because they discovered he had stolen from them.
Williams worked as the men's live-in caretaker. They had health problems and hired Williams to help at their Flowing Wells-area home.
