CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – A Chesapeake woman will serve a 53 year sentence, the same as her boyfriend, for a double homicide in July 2013.

Airika Liljegren was sentenced in Chesapeake Circuit Court Monday on the charges of first degree murder and concealing a dead body.

Police found the bodies of 59-year-old Anthony Barone and 54-year-old Cindy Ellett inside their home in the Dominion Lakes neighborhood. Investigators said the bodies had been in the home for several days.

Ryan Martinez, Ellett’s son, was sentenced back in February for second degree murder, a firearms charge and two counts of concealing a body.
