Man Gets Life in Prison for Robbery Killings

GRAND RAPIFDS, Mich. (AP) -- A 25-year-old man convicted of first-degree murder in the robbery and slayings of two men outside a Grand Rapids convenience store has been sentenced to five terms of life in prison.

Michael Norris told Kent County Circuit Judge Paul Sullivan on Tuesday that "you got the wrong guy" and "the real killer got a year in jail."

The Grand Rapids Press reports (http://bit.ly/1qvtR0m ) Norris received two mandatory terms of life without parole for the murder convictions and three other life terms.

Authorities say Norris and Manuel Rosado decided to rob three men leaving a store Sept. 3, 2012. Rosado says Norris unexpectedly shot the three men, killing two and seriously wounding the third. Rosado received a plea deal in exchange for testimony.

Forty-five-year-old Felix Reyes-Santos and 22-year-old Alvaro Carrillo-Menendez died.
