Justice catches up with the killer in an alleged drug-related double murder that shocked Calhoun County with its violence. Kirk Miller, 33, was sentenced to 2 consecutive life with mercy sentences Friday. He won't be eligible for parole for 30 years.

The Salem man killed Mike Flanagan and his wife, Julie, with a shotgun at their Millstone house on Easter weekend in 2009. He claimed Mike Flanagan owed him money related to drugs.

Kelly Brown, Julie's daughter addressed the court at sentencing. She said: " Not only do I miss them everyday, but since I was the one who found them after they were murdered, I have the images of them burned into my mind. All this because Miller decided money was a good enough reason to kill 2 people." Miller pumped three rounds from a 12 gauge shotgun into Mike Flanagan, then shot Flanagan's wife twice. He told state troopers he killed the woman simply because she was" in the wrong place at the wrong time."
