GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — The leader of a violent crime ring in Delaware will spend the rest of his life in prison after a judge sentenced him to two life terms, plus 769 years behind bars.
Steven Kellam of Dover was convicted last year for his role in a 2014 home invasion robbery in Millsboro. Two people were shot and killed.
Kellam was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder, organized crime, racketeering and multiple other charges.
The News Journal reports that a Sussex County Superior Court judge on Friday called the 37-year-old Kellam the crime ring’s “kingpin” and “puppeteer” before handing down his sentence.
