A Bell County judge on Wednesday sentenced a man and woman already convicted of a Killeen murder to decades behind bars, an official said on Wednesday.

Judge John Gauntt of the 27th Judicial District Court sentenced Erica Lane Brownlee, 20, to 25 years in prison and James Tyshawn Pinkard, 23, to 35 years in prison, said Assistant District Attorney Mike Waldman, who prosecuted the case for the state.
