DETROIT (AP) – A man convicted of killing a Detroit-area couple and dumping their body parts into the Detroit River has been ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Roger Bowling was sentenced Wednesday in Detroit. He has no chance at parole. Bowling was found guilty last month of first-degree murder, dismemberment and other charges in the slayings of 32-year-old Danielle Greenway and 42-year-old Chris Hall at their home in Allen Park.
