Convicted murderer Martin Heidgen was sentenced to more prison time Wednesday for evidence tampering during his 2006 drunk-driving murder trial.
Heidgen is currently serving 18 years to life in prison for killing two people in a wrong-way crash on the Meadowbrook Parkway. In February, Heidgen pleaded guilty to tampering with a court-ordered DNA test during his trial.
A judge ruled the newly imposed sentence of 1-3 years in prison to be served after Heidgen completes his current sentence. Heidgen, who has been incarcerated since July 2005, will now serve 19 years to life in prison.
