CARLTON, Minn. (WCCO/AP) – A 28-year-old Cloquet man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison in the shooting deaths of a northeastern Minnesota couple.

On Monday, David Joshua Annette was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder, and was given 30 years in prison for each count. Two first-degree murder charges were dismissed. He previously pleaded not guilty to four counts of first-degree murder.

Annette’s girlfriend, Rachel Charlotte Defoe, was charged with aiding and abetting the crimes.

The couple is accused in the slaying of Kim Schmitx and Thomas Holm in the victims’ Cromwell home in January. Both victims were 53.
