Ali gets life sentence in Loomis murders

Mustafa Ali received a life sentence in prison Wednesday, as decided by the jury in the ongoing murder trial.

Ali received two life sentences without parole for the October 2007 murders of Loomis employees William Widmaier and Joseph Alullo. Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart ordered the terms be served consecutively.

The jury debated for three hours about the sentencing, after finding Ali guilty of first-degree murder last week.
