A Georgia soldier accused of running an anti-government militia has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for a double slaying.

Pvt. Isaac Aguigui of Cashmere, Wash., pleaded guilty as part of a deal that spared him the death penalty on two counts of malice murder. He also pleaded guilty to four counts of violating Georgia's anti-gang law.

Prosecutors said Aguigui and three fellow Fort Stewart soldiers were part of a militia group called Forever Enduring Always Ready. The defendants were accused of fatally shooting a former member of their Army unit and the man's 17-year-old girlfriend.

Investigators say Aguigui ordered the deaths of Michael Roark and Tiffany York in 2011 to keep them from exposing the group's plans.

Aguigui's attorney, Newell Hamilton Jr., declined to comment.
