ATLANTA -- A Decatur man will spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of killing two people in 2010.
Derrick Burden, 24, was sentenced Friday to two life sentences without the possibility of parole.
He was found guilty of shooting 21-year-old Samuel Blizzard, Jr. and 26-year-old Calvin Streater to death inside a southeast Atlanta townhouse on Sept. 5, 2010.
