DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - Two Danville men were sentenced on Thursday for a murder in Danville last July.

Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Newman said Marteno Holmes will spend life in prison, plus 20 years and Jahiza Jones will serve 34 years for first-degree murder and other charges in the death of Solomon Jones.

The shooting stemmed from a relationship Solomon Jones had with a member of the suspects' family.
