ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis man was sentenced Monday in a 2018 double homicide stemming from an alleged robbery and drug deal.
A jury in September found Corliss F. Mack Jr., 38, of the 2800 block of Howard Street, guilty of two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action, while finding him not guilty of robbery and kidnapping. The jury acquitted a co-defendant of all counts.
Judge Michael Noble sentenced Mack to 20 years in prison.
Mack and the co-defendant stood trial in September in the May 2018 deaths of Ira Johnson and Sylvester Caston in the city’s Penrose neighborhood.
