The alleged mastermind of a deadly home invasion robbery in Southport last year will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Circuit Judge James Fenson sentence Steven Mark Lang, 25, to a life sentence Monday afternoon. On July 29, 2011, a local jury convicted Lang of two counts of second degree murder, armed burglary and attempted armed robbery. Lang and four friends tried to rob Michael Norman, 65, and Daniel Nelson, 62, at their home on Jefferson Avenue back on May 12, 2010.
Norman wound up shooting and killing Michael Duffy, 21, and Devin Butler, 20, as they broke in.
