ATLANTA (AP) -- A 40-year-old man has been convicted of murdering two of his employees at an auto dealership in East Point and has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus 10 years.
A Fulton County jury returned the verdict Wednesday against Rolandas Milinavicius of Alpharetta. He was convicted of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Prosecutors said the motive for the July 2007 killings was financial stress. The victims had asked for raises two weeks before their deaths.
The victims, 28-year-old Marytnas Simokatis and 25-year old Inga Contreras, were found shot to death at the dealership. The defendant and the victims were all natives of Lithuania.
