Justice has been served – double life sentence received by Iowa man
According to a news article published by U.S News, a 39-year-old guy who killed his fiancée and her companion a few years ago was given double life sentence terms.
Despite requests for an explanation from the families of his girlfriend Tamica Allison, 42, and the second victim Andrea Anderson, 41, Matthew Dee Buford III, convicted with double life sentence terms, provided none at the sentencing hearing on Thursday, according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier.
Mohammed Calhoun, Anderson’s son, said, “If you had any human decency left, I would just ask you, let us know why.”
At the trial held last month, the prosecution did not present many motives.
In the end, the jury determined Buford was guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and fleeing the scene of the crime. It was further decided to put a double life sentence on him.
The three, according to the authorities, were intoxicated at Buford and Allison’s house.
According to a published article from FOX News, in her testimony, Allison’s adolescent daughter described hearing her mother ask, “What are you going to do, shoot me in the face? I don’t mind and I’m not afraid.
When the daughter walked downstairs, she heard two shots and found Buford clutching a gun and the two bodies on the floor.
Buford, who was convicted of double life sentence terms, left the state after dropping off the daughter and her younger brother at neighboring residences.
A few days later, in Peoria, Illinois, he turned himself up and will serve the double life sentence term.
