Man Gets Life Sentence For Fort Worth Robbery

FORT WORTH (AP) – A North Texas man accused of killing two people outside a bar has been sentenced to life in prison for an unrelated earlier armed robbery.

Investigators say 22-year-old Robert Earl Bell Jr. of Fort Worth was convicted last week in a July 3, 2009, attack. Christopher Richardson survived being shot outside a Fort Worth apartment complex.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports jurors deliberated about 45 minutes Monday before giving Bell the maximum prison term.

Bell is charged with capital murder in the July 11, 2009, robbery and shooting deaths of two men outside a lounge in Arlington. Records show Bell was on parole from the juvenile system at the time of the crimes.
