Judge sentences Balaton man to life times two for murder of elderly couple


WORTHINGTON, Minn. -- A judge Monday handed a Balaton, Minn., man two life prison sentences, plus an additional 15 years in prison, for the April 2015 murders of an elderly Balaton couple and the arson of their rural farm home.

Derek Michael Hexum, 21, was originally facing 10 charges for the killing of James and Catherine Hively.

He pleaded guilty in March in Lyon County District Court to two counts of first-degree murder while committing burglary, first-degree burglary, first-degree arson and second-degree arson.
