KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City man was sentenced to life in prison for killing two people whose bodies were found inside a burned-out car.

Twenty-year-old Todd B. Fonville was sentenced Tuesday for the April 2011 deaths of Jose Morales and Debeney Kreiling. Fonville was convicted in August of first-degree murder and five other felonies arising from the deaths.

Prosecutors said Fonville and another man, Miguel Apodaca, robbed the two victims and shot them at a Kansas City house. They then put the bodies in a car and set in on fire in northeast Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reported that Apodaca was sentenced to 20 years in prison in August after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
