(KMOV) -- Anthony Akins, the second man accused in the 2008 murders of a waitress and cook at a south St. Louis County Steak ‘n Shake, was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday.
Anthony Akins pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action and first-degree robbery.
He was sentenced to life in prison for all charges.
Anthony’s brother, Oundr’e, was already found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison in March.
Authorities say that in November 2008, the brothers broke into a south St. Louis County Steak ‘n Shake, where both had previously worked and killed 44-year-old waitress Tammy Cantrell and 24-year-old cook Mark Gerstner. The robbery netted them less than $200.
During Oundr’e’s hearing, Anthony reneged on a plea deal with prosecutors to testify against his brother.
Anthony had already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
