SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A judge has ordered a 19-year-old man to prison for two shooting deaths and an aggravated assault during what police call an out-of-control crime spree.

In 2007 Samuel Paul Krokaugger shot and killed 17-year-old Luis A. Trujillo on June 24 and Aaron Wheelright on June 29.

Krokaugger pleaded guilty to first-degree felony murder and an amended charge of second-degree felony manslaughter for the deaths. He also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for shooting Kasey Ketron in the head on June 23, 2007. She survived the injury.

On Friday, a 3rd District Judge ordered three prison terms: 15 years to life for Trujillo's murder; and two terms of two-to 20 years for Wheelright's death and Ketron's shooting.
