TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa man is sentenced to life without parole for beating his neighbor to death with a hammer.

Prosecutors say Billy Gene Marshall hit Alonzo Tibbs in the head 12 times.  They say DNA evidence linked Marshall to the crime, and that the victim's wallet was found in Marshall's pair of bloody jeans.

Marshall is already serving a life sentence for attacking a north Tulsa store clerk with a hammer.
