New York man to spend life in prison after being found guilty of 2015 Christmas slayings

MANCHESTER, Maine (WABI) - A New York man who killed a couple in Manchester on Christmas Day 2015 will spend his life in prison.

32-year-old David Marble was sentenced Friday in Portland.

He was found guilty in July for the murders of 35-year-old Eric Williams and 26-year-old Bonnie Royer.

Police say Marble shot both of them in the head because he thought Williams stole from him.

The trial was moved from Augusta to Portland because of publicity surrounding Marble's nickname, "D Money."

Governor LePage referred to "D Money" in highly publicized remarks condemning out-of-state drug dealers.
