A 22-year-old Ottawa man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the shooting deaths of two men at a highrise in November 2008.

Matthew Kalli plead guilty to the acts of manslaughter in the deaths of 25-year-old Warsame Okie and 18-year-old Hayder Al-Ebadi.

The years he spent in custody while going through the court system will be counted as time already served.

The crime happened in a building on Prince of Wales near Hog's Back. It is occupied by many Carleton University students.
