Tulsa, Okla., man gets 4 consecutive life terms

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A judge has done what a jury decided not to do — put a Tulsa man in prison for the rest of his life after he was convicted of killing two women.

Tony Alton Hall, 54, continued to maintain his innocence Wednesday at a sentencing hearing that followed his conviction Dec. 14 in the October 2007 deaths of Angela Bassett, 29, and Angela Hargrove, 36.

Hall told District Judge Kurt Glassco, "I did not kill nobody."

But Glassco imposed four life sentences, to be served consecutively — two of them for slaying the women, and two for unauthorized removal of a body. The women's bodies were found alongside a road, bound and covered with a tarp.

The jury that convicted Hall had the option of recommending sentences of life without parole on the murder counts, but chose not to do so.
