    Convicted Kraft factory shooter gets 2 life sentences

    The woman convicted earlier this month of fatally shooting two co-workers at the Kraft foods factory in Northeast Philadelphia in 2010 has been formally sentenced.

    Action News reports Yvonne Hiller has gotten two life sentences for killing 47-year-old Tanya Wilson and 36-year-old LaTonya Brown after returning to the factory with a gun following her suspension from work.

     Hiller will not get the opportunity for parole, and was sentenced to an additional 10 to 20 years for wounding Bryants Dalton.
