OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Multiple life prison sentences have been handed down to a 38-year-old man who was convicted in the deaths of four people, including a woman featured on the HBO series "Cathouse."

Oklahoma County District Judge Tim Henderson handed down the sentences Friday to Denny Edward Phillips.

In June, a 12-member jury found Phillips guilty of six counts of first-degree murder in the 2009 deaths of 22-year-old Brooke Phillips, 32-year-old Casey Mark Barrientos, 22-year-old Milagros Barrera and 25-year-old Jennifer Lynn Ermey. Phillips was also convicted in the deaths of the unborn children of Phillips and Barrera.

Prosecutors alleged Denny Phillips ordered the killing of Barrientos and that the women were killed to eliminate witnesses.

Brooke Phillips was featured on the HBO series about the Moonlite BunnyRanch, a legal brothel near Carson City, Nevada.
