UPDATE: Keys gets 2 life sentences

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Martaves Keys was sentenced to two life sentences on Thursday. 

A jury found Martaves Keys guilty in February for killing Ronald Scullark, Jr. and Anissa Schroeder in 2007.  Prosecutors say Keys shot the two over a drug deal.

Keys lawyers claim a juror wrote a blog in 2007 calling Keys a killer and wrote that one of the victims was her boyfriend's cousin. Jurors took their turn on the witness stand testifying about comments that alternate juror made. But a judge denied the appeal for a new trial.
