ALLIANCE, Neb. (AP) - A 26-year-old man has been given two life terms for stabbing to death two people at his home in the Nebraska Panhandle city of Alliance.
The Panhandle Post website says (http://bit.ly/TPCcNk ) Dominick Dubray also was sentenced to 30 to 40 years in prison on two weapons charges. The life sentences were mandatory for the first-degree murder convictions. Dubray was found guilty by a Box Butte County jury on Oct. 15.
Prosecutors say Dubray killed 22-year-old Catalina Chavez, of Alliance, and 42-year-old Mike Loutzenhiser, of Scottsbluff. Their bodies were found in Dubray's house on Feb. 11.
Prosecutors say the case stemmed from an act of rage that erupted from a domestic dispute between Dubray and Chavez. The defense says Dubray was acting in self-defense.
Dubray says he intends to appeal.
