In White County, a man will spend more than five decades in prison for two murders.
37-year-old Danny Coston was sentenced to 53 years in prison yesterday. He was found guilty of killing 17-year-old Jessie Evans and her boyfriend 22-year-old Jacob Wheeler in August of last year.
Police say he shot Wheeler, sexually assaulted Evans and then killed her near the Little Wabash River.
Coston’s girlfriend, Candice Brown, is charged with obstruction of justice after police say she lied to them about details in the case. She’s due back in court in January.
Coston will have to spend at least 50 years in jail before he’s eligible for parole.
