FBI's most wanted, Terry Strickland, sentenced to 60 years for fatally shooting two men

One of the FBI's most wanted men was in court Wednesday afternoon for a double homicide that happened last year in Milwaukee.

Several loved ones took the stand, talking to the judge about the victims and how their lives have changed since their deaths. 

Tensions were high in the courtroom between the family of the two victims and the 25-year-old suspect Terry Strickland. 

Strickland was escorted into the court room as he looked and smirked at friends and family of the two victims who were killed on July 17th 2016. 

Police say eye witnesses saw Strickland go inside his home and grab a gun, then shoot at a group of men who were arguing, killing two of them.

Officers say Strickland immediately fled the state, leaving behind his 18-month-old daughter who was later found by police on a bed. She is now in state custody.

Strickland was arrested in Texas on January 15th by an anonymous tip. 

Family members of the victims fought back tears as they explained their new lives. 

"You're gonna get what you deserve," said one victim's brother.

Strickland was sentenced to 60 years in prison and 16 years of extended supervision.
