Man sentenced to life in 2 Suffolk murders

A reputed Yaphank gang member was sentenced to life in prison for two execution-style murders in Suffolk County.



Reginald Ross was sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison today.



Ross was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Raymond Hirt and John Williams in 2010.



Hirt was shot to death sitting in his car at a construction site in Lake Ronkonkoma.



Months later, Ross shot and killed Williams in front of Williams' Holbrook home.



Ross' attorney has already requested an appeal.
