A Rochester man has been sentenced to life in prison two years after he killed two men on March 17, 2018. 

According to court documents, 55-year-old Glenn Johnson was sentenced on Tuesday to life in prison without parole. 

Johnson was charged with the fatal stabbings of 57-year-old Philip Hicks and 45-year-old Eric Flemmings on St. Patrick's Day 2018. The attack took place in a hallway as the Castleview Apartments in downtown Rochester where the three men lived.

An Olmsted County jury found him guilty of first-degree murder in the first phase. They rejected his not-guilty-by-reason of mental illness in the second part of the trial. 

The trial was completed in three days.
