TULSA, OK -- A Jenks woman and a Tulsa man could find out what their prison sentences will be on Monday.

A Tulsa County District Court judge affirmed the sentencing recommendation for Ashley Parnell and Jermaine Jeffrey during court appearances on Monday.

They are two separate cases but both of Parnell and Jeffrey share the same fate. J urors in both cases recommended life in prison and the judge concurred.  

Ashley Parnell of Jenks will spend more than 38 years in prison before she's eligible for parole.

Back in February, a jury found her guilty of killing Skyler Roininen in April 2008.

It took the jury 10 hours to make that decision.

Authorities say the 2-year-old died from severe head trauma.

Jermaine Jeffery's victim was 19.  Keisha Williamson died after Jeffrey crashed into her car.

Tulsa Police say it all started with a fight between Jeffrey and another woman.  Police say Jeffrey fired shots at the girlfriend during that fight, then drove off and ended up ramming his car into Williamson's car.

Williamson died later at a Tulsa hospital.
