The man accused of killing an Albany businessman during an armed robbery is sentenced to two life prison terms for two earlier armed robberies.
Judge Willie Lockette handed down that sentence Tuesday afternoon for 22-year old Jordan Harris.
In May a jury convicted Harris of robbing two Dougherty County Flash Foods Stores in February 2009.
He's already serving 20-years after pleading guilty to robbing a Lee County Flash Foods.
Harris is awaiting trial on charges that he murdered Albany hardware store owner Walter Phelps.
He was shot during a robbery in July 2010 and died five weeks later.
"Everyday in broad daylight armed robberies in our area. And we hope that this sentence will help curtail some of that," said Dougherty Chief Assistant D.A. Heather Lanier.
Prosecutors said they're still considering going after the death penalty against Harris when he is tried for that murder.
