A New York City street gang member was sentenced to death on Wednesday in the execution-style slayings of two undercover police officers in 2003 — the latest chapter in a case that's seen his original death sentence overturned, his behind-bars affair with a prison guard exposed and the massive cost of his defense questioned.

It took a jury only about five hours to reach the decision in federal court in Brooklyn in the case against Ronell Wilson.

Another jury had found Wilson guilty in the point-blank shootings of undercover officers James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews. The gunman shot both men in the head after one pleaded for his life, NBC News reports.
