GARY, Ind. - A Gary teenager convicted of killing two other Gary teenagers has been sentenced to 183 years in prison.
The Post-Tribune reports that the longest of 17-year-old Donnell Wilson's sentences on murder and robbery was doubled due to a gang activity enhancement.
Prosecutors said a photo of 19-year-old Shaqwone Ham and 18-year-old Charles Wood with gang-affiliated hand gestures led to their deaths.
Wilson was 16 at the time of the slayings. He made no statement in court Friday.
Defense attorney John Cantrell asked for leniency because his client is "a kid." Cantrell says he will file an appeal.
Eighteen-year-old Jonte Crawford of Gary, who also was charged in the deaths, was sentenced Thursday to 61 years in prison as part of a plea agreement.
