KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Two men have been resentenced in a shooting that left two other men dead in 2009 in Kansas City, Kansas.

Wyandotte County prosecutors announced Tuesday that 25-year-old Cedric Warrant and 29-year-old Dominic Moore, of Kansas City, Kansas, were sentenced this month to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. They also must serve another 25 years.

They were convicted in 2010 of killing 21-year-old Charles Ford, of Olathe, and 26-year-old Larry Ledoux, of Kansas City, Kansas, and wounding a third man who survived.

The Kansas Supreme Court overturned their original life prison sentence with no chance of parole for 50 years. The punishment was imposed under an older version of the state’s “Hard 50” law deemed unconstitutional under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2013.
