EUREKA- The man who pled guilty to a double homicide in Eureka last March was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.

In October, Vincent Sanchez pled guilty to killing his half brother, 25-year-old Lance Henry, and 60-year-old Richard Storre.  He received sentences of 15 years to life for each of those murder counts. He also pled guilty to using a firearm in the commission of a felony.  Sanchez received a sentence of 10 years for that special allegation. Sanchez did not give a statement at Friday’s sentencing.  He will have the possibility of parole after 40 years.
