South Bend man sentenced in connection with 2012 double murder

South Bend, Ind. A South Bend man will be locked up for the rest of his life for his role in a 2012 shooting that left two teens dead.

Last month 27-year-old Charles Moore was found guilty of one count of robbery, and two counts each of murder and felony murder. Friday, during the second phase of the trial, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole, per the jury's recommendation.

Moore's co-defendant, 22-year-old Jermon Gavin, is also facing robbery and murder charges in the case. He will be back in court on October 7. And the pair's admitted accomplice, 21-year-old Rakeem White, was sentenced last September to four years in prison after pleading guilty to assisting a criminal.

The shootings happened back in January of 2012 on the city's northwest side.19-year-olds Jazmin Conlee and Alejandro Tinoco were shot to death inside their home in the 1100 Block of North Adams Street.
