CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A Gary man was sentenced to 130 years in prison Friday after being convicted in the 2020 killings of two teenage boys found shot to death in a northwest Indiana home.
A Lake County jury found 37-year-old Alvino Amaya, 37, guilty of two counts of murder and a firearm enhancement last month in the slayings of 18-year-old Elijah Robinson and 17-year-old Maxwell Kroll.
Prosecutors said the teens were slain execution-style on Oct. 16, 2020, in a home near Griffith as Amaya was searching for a missing handgun.
Judge Salvador Vasquez said Amaya’s character showed he was “horribly violent.”
