Coggins receives 50-to-Life sentence for April 2013 town of Carroll murders...

The accused ringleader of the April 2013 robbery and murders of a town of Carroll couple has received the maximum 50 years to life in prison.  District Attorney David Foley says the term was handed down to 35 year-old Davide Coggins in Chautauqua County Court late this morning.  Foley says he was "very pleased" to see Judge John Ward hand down the sentence on two counts of Felony second-degree murder in this "vicious" case.  Foley says members of 66 year-old Gordon, and 59 year-old Joyce Skinner's family spoke before Ward delivered sentencing for Coggins.  He adds that Coggins also addressed the family... again minimizing his role in the heinous crime.
