A man who pleaded guilty in the murder of Tunas couple will now spend the next 48 years of his life in prison.

A judge handed down the ruling to Billy Medley, one of two men accused in the Murder of Joe and Brandy Allen in Dallas County.

Another man involved, Jeff Stevenson, also faces murder charges in his court date set for October.

Reports show the couple were attempting to stop the men outside their home, as they were stealing their cars.
