GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Javonte Higgins, the man convicted in the murders of a Kentwood couple, has been sentenced to two life in prison terms.
Judge Mark Trusock told Higgins in court: "You are a very evil person."
Higgins was convicted last month for the January 2013 murders of David and Vivian Bouwman.
During last month's trial, prosecutors outlined their case against Higgins. They say he broke into the Bouwmans' home, confronted the couple, then shot them both in the head.
Higgins stole the couple's car, then later burned it in an attempt to destroy evidence.
Prosecutors had no evidence directly linking Higgins to the murders... but their circumstantial case was enough to convince the jury.
Higgins was convicted on charges of felony murder, home invasion and a weapons count. His lawyer said they will seek an appeal of the conviction.
