TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa man waived his right to a jury trial and plead guilty to two counts of first degree murder and two counts of removal of a dead body. 

During a hearing in Tulsa County District Court Tuesday morning, Eric Phillips was sentenced to two concurrent life sentences on the first degree murder counts and five years each on the removal of the dead body counts. 

Tulsa Police say Phillips and Tony Hall killed Angela Hardgrove and Angela Bassett and then dumped their bodies on the side of a road.
