A Colorado man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for his role in the 2015 deaths of two Oklahoma men in a marijuana smuggling dispute.

The Greeley Tribune reports the sentence handed down for 38-year-old Jack Larkin of Pierce Thursday was the maximum one he could have received under a plea bargain he reached with prosecutors.

He pleaded guilty in August to two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 23-year-old Josh Foster of Muskogee and 22-year-old Zachary Moore of Prague.

Larkin's half brother, Samuel Pinney of Muskogee, is serving life without parole for first-degree murder.

Prosecutors said Foster and Pinney had a smuggling arrangement but Foster went behind Pinney's back, using Pinney's Colorado connections, to buy pot. 

They say Larkin and Pinney lured Foster to Colorado to seek revenge.
