Convicted murderer gets two life sentences after plea deal

CALHOUN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - A Calhoun County man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to murder.

In 2008, Skylar Allen stabbed a man to death in Ohatchee. The victim had hired Allen to do yard work.

Allen was originally charged with capital murder, but a plea deal allowed him to be sentenced to two life sentences, plus 30 years. This means Allen can request parole in a few years from now.
