Pair of Cleveland brothers receive life sentence for killing neighbor in July 2013

CLEVELAND - A pair of Cleveland brothers, who opened fire on on each other last year, were both given life sentences Wednesday for killing their neighbor in crossfire. 

On July 28, 2013 Jonathan and Carvin Catron were involved in an augment at their home on Columbia Avenue when gunfire erupted. 

The Cartons' neighbor, 20-year-old James Swindler III, stepped onto his front porch during the argument and was shot and killed in the crossfire.

Today, Jonathan was convicted on two counts each of murder and felonious assault and Carvin was convicted on one count each of murder and felonious assault.

The jury sentenced both Carvin's to life in prison and ordered that each serve 21 years in prison before requesting parole.
