Four sentenced in killing of Escambia County couple

ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fl (WFLX) - -

Four men were sentenced for their role in the 2009 killings of a husband and wife who were shot to death when a crew of masked men burst into their Escambia County home.

The four will serve at least 17 years in prison, a judge ruled.

The men were convicted of second-degree murder and home invasion for their roles in the slayings of Byrd and Melanie Billings.

Nine special-needs children the couple had adopted were in the house at the time of the murders.
