DC man sentenced to 80 years for killing 2 siblings after 1 fought with his girlfriend


WASHINGTON — A man convicted of fatally shooting two siblings after one of them got into a fight with his girlfriend has been sentenced to 80 years in prison.

Thirty-nine-year-old Kevin Walker of Washington was sentenced Thursday in Superior Court in Washington.

Walker was convicted in December of two counts of first-degree murder while armed in the deaths of 21-year-old Jamahl Jenkins and 28-year-old Jamie Jenkins.

Prosecutors say on July 20, 2013, Jamie Jenkins got into a fight with Walker's girlfriend. Authorities say after the fight, Jamie Jenkins and her brother returned to the scene to find a lost cellphone.

Prosecutors say Walker approached the siblings and shot Jamie Jenkins, then shot Jamahl Jenkins six times in the back as he tried to run away.
