Cortez Mitchell, 19, was sentenced to two life sentences and four 20-year sentences for his role in a 2015 crime spree that included the murders of Antonio Hernandez Lopez and Joshua Davis. The life sentences will run consecutively, according to the Morgan County District Attorney's office.
Mitchell, Cedric Cowan, Joseph Cowan and Amani Goodwin were arrested for the murders of Lopez in the carport of his Decatur home and Davis at Wilson Morgan Park in May of 2015.
Police said the four confessed to a string of robberies and said some of them said they committed the crimes for fun. They were caught after one of them took a picture of himself with a cell phone stolen during one of the robberies, according to police.
Goodwin pleaded guilty in January to three counts of first-degree robbery and two counts of felony murder. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
