TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A jury in Tulsa has recommended two life-without-parole prison sentences for a 26-year-old man convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2014 slayings of two women.

The Tulsa World reports that Quantell Jamar Alverson was convicted on Friday in the Nov. 26, 2014, deaths of 26-year-old Amanda Drywater-Douglas and 37-year-old Jennifer Lynn Sudar.

Alverson was accused of gunning down Drywater-Douglas and Sudar at an east Tulsa apartment complex. A car that police believed Alverson had driven from the scene was found partially burned two weeks later.

District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler says a combination of eyewitness testimony, DNA evidence and cell tower records tied Alverson to the crimes.

Formal sentencing for Alverson is set for May 2.
