EVANSVILLE — An Evansville man convicted of fatally stabbing his estranged wife and her ex-husband has been sentenced to 110 years in prison.
Ernest Lee Douglas, 48, learned his punishment Wednesday after a jury on March 12 convicted him on two counts of murder.
Police conducting a welfare check found the bodies Satanna Kendle-Douglas and Donte Meriwether, both 43, in the woman's Evansville apartment on Aug. 19, 2019, The Evansville Courier & Press reported.
The Vanderburgh County Coroner determined they died of multiple stab wounds.
Kendle-Douglas had asked police to bar her estranged husband from her apartment following an altercation between Douglas and Meriwether two months earlier.
Neighbors told police they saw a man leave the apartment covered in blood.
A neighbor reported seeing a man arrive and leave in a gray SUV. Police discovered evidence of blood in a gray SUV owned by Douglas, a probable cause affidavit said.
