Man gets life in prison in fatal stabbings case

YORK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty in the fatal stabbings of a 12-year-old boy and his adult half-brother during a southeastern Michigan home invasion.

The sentence was ordered Monday for Joseph Hall in Washtenaw County Trial Court. He pleaded guilty last month to two counts of felony murder and other charges related to the June 13 deaths of Timber Brown and 26-year-old Jon Brown at a York Township home, south of Ann Arbor. Three others were stabbed.

Police believe Hall and 34-year-old Jesse Spurlock intended to rob Hall's drug dealer. Spurlock's trial is scheduled to start next month.

Hall says his drug and alcohol use shouldn't be an excuse for his crimes. He added he prays for forgiveness and accepts "any punishments."
