WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison without parole for killing two people inside a Wichita Dollar General store late last year.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/18oPjwg) reports Marquis Marshall spoke few words Wednesday at his sentencing hearing. He was convicted in October of capital murder in the Nov. 30, 2012, fatal shootings of 22-year-old store employee Zachary Hunt and 79-year-old customer Henry Harvey.

Prosecutors say they still don't know why Marshall shot the victims. A Sedgwick County jury deliberated less than two hours Oct. 2 before convicting Marshall. His defense lawyer presented no evidence at his trial, and a motive for the shootings was never disclosed.

About two dozen relatives of Harvey and Hunt attended the sentencing hearing.
