LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who killed an MTV music coordinator and another man during a series of Los Angeles robberies has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
 
City News Service says a judge who passed sentence Wednesday called 31-year-old Jabaar Thomas a "cold-blooded," remorseless murderer.
 
Prosecutors say Thomas killed a father of two, Marcelo Aragon, in 2011 and a week later killed MTV music coordinator Gabriel Ben-Meir outside his home.
 
Both were killed by shotgun blasts during robberies.
 
Two other people have pleaded guilty in connection with a series of robberies and await sentencing.
