INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A 20-year-old Indianapolis man found guilty of two counts of murder received a sentence of 95 years in prison on Friday, county prosecutors said.
Justin Kasten was found guilty Sept. 28 of murdering Daniel White, 22, and Devin Calloway, 19. Police found the two dead with gunshot wounds on Feb. 17, 2015, in the 1000 block of Harlan Street. That’s in the southeast downtown area near Fountain Square. White and Calloway were found by responding officers next to a running vehicle suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Kasten was also shot in the neck as a result of the exchange, prosecutors said.
Kasten was 17 years old at the time of the offense.
In May 2015, Sean Wright also was arrested along with Kaston, but charges against Wright were dismissed in December.
Kasten was sentenced in Marion Superior Court, Criminal Division 5. In addition to the two murder counts, Kaston was also convicted of armed robbery.
