Michael Wonson gets 70 to life for 2000 double homicide

A 34-year-old D.C. man was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 70 years for killing two people in front of a high school.

Michael Wonson was sentenced in D.C. Superior Court for the 2000 slayings of Charles Jackson, 21, and Ivory Harrison, 21 at Eastern High School.

Authorities say Wonson and a co-conspirator drove to the area looking for people they had gotten into a fight with earlier. Wonson and the co-conspirator opened fire, killing the victims.
