KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — A 19-year-old Oregon man connected to the shooting deaths of two strangers has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Herald and News reports that Seth James Cunningham received the sentence Friday in Klamath County Circuit Court and will be eligible for parole after 40 years.

Cunningham on Thursday took a plea deal involving the shooting deaths of 21-year-old Aaron Dillon Andrews and 39-year-old Tyler Devore Nelson.

Cunningham did not admit guilt in Nelson's death, but admitted prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him.

Authorities say Cunningham shot and killed Nelson in 2014 as Nelson walked on a trail in Klamath Falls. Cunningham shot and killed Andrews in 2015 after the two bumped into each other while dancing at a party.
