A prison inmate once under two death sentences has been re-sentenced to life with no change of parole. A judge had given Lemoine Carter two death sentences in 1995 after a jury could not decide what the penalty should be for killing two men. Higher courts have since ruled judges cannot impose death sentences without a jury recommendation. Carter was convicted in Knasas City of killing the two men in an argument about a $20 bar bet.
