MUSKEGON, Mich. – The Muskegon man already serving two life terms in prison for murder got several more years tacked on Monday.

Leon Means was sentenced Monday to 20 to 47 years in prison for the murders of his wife, Cynthia Means and his mother-in-law, Linda Herrera, in June of 1989.  He pleaded no contest to 2nd degree murder in this case on November 2.  Both women had been stabbed several times and Herrera had also been shot in the chest.

Means pleaded no contest earlier this year to killing Judy Bushman and Anna Lawson in October of 2014 and was sentenced to life in prison without a chance of parole in those cases.
