MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Two brothers have been sentenced for a 2014 Marion County murder.

Jerry Page and Anthony Abram were convicted last week for the murder of Ryan Cooper, whose body was discovered in a burned truck off East Reservoir Road.

Page was given four life sentences without the possibility for parole or early release. Page's sentences stem from murder, arson, felon in possession of a firearm, and simple assault on a law enforcement officer charges.

Page's sentences are to run consecutively under the habitual offender statue.

Abram was given 20 years with 20 to serve for his accessory after the fact to murder charge. He was given three years with three to serve on his arson charge. Both of his sentences are to run concurrent.

Abram also plead guilty to a pending felony DUI charge and was given five year with five to serve. That charge will also be served concurrently with his other charges.
