ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   A killer is going to prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to a 2009 double murder in Crisp County.

Corey Dennis pleaded guilty to two counts of murder, kidnapping, and armed robbery.

He and his brother Amin Dennis shot 51-year-old Jerry Lee Lawrence and 36-year-old Harold Reese in a Crisp County cotton field,  then set their bodies on fire.

After his plea, Corey Dennis was sentenced to four life terms plus 30-years in prison.

Last year, his brother was sentenced to life without parole.

A third co-defendant, Jennifer McCleod, will be tried later.
