GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- Cornelius Walston, 30, was sentenced Friday to two life sentences for the stabbing deaths of David Smith and Kevin Martin.

In May, a jury convicted Walston on two counts of murder in the second degree.
In October 2009, Walston got into a fight with the two victims at Club Myth in Clay County.

The fight started inside the bar and then carried over into the club's parking lot. During the fight, Walston stabbed Smith, 24, in the chest and Martin, 24, in the left arm. Smith died at the scene and Martin died in the hospital.
