Minter sentenced to life for 2006 slayings

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to

life in prison for the 2006 shooting deaths of two people at a

Gulfport home.

Larry Minter was convicted Friday of two counts of capital

murder - but the jury rejected a state request for the death

penalty.

Minter also was convicted on a robbery charge but acquitted of

sexual battery.

Prosecutors said Minter was the gunman in the shootings of

54-year-old Harold "Bucky" Levron and 38-year-old Christine

Suber. They were found dead after a burglary at Levron's home.

Minter was one of four people charged in the case. Two have

pleaded guilty and a third is awaiting trial.
