The man convicted of the 2002 slayings of a husband and wife in front of their two young daughters will spend the rest of his life in prison, said Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney Mike Doucette.

At a news conference Thursday, Doucette said the Commonwealth will not seek a re-sentencing of Leon Winston in an attempt to procure a capital sentence.
