LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The man convicted of killing James Carroll in June of 2009 was back in a court room Wednesday morning for formal sentencing.

A judge sentenced Joseph Banis to life in prison with the possibility of parole after serving 20 years.

A jury cleared Banis' co-defendent, Jeffrey Mundt, of the most serious charges including murder, but they did find him guilty of facilitation of robbery and tampering with evidence.

The jury recommended eight years in jail for Mundt. They recommended three years for robbery facilitation and five years for tampering with evidence, to run consecutively.

Mundt's formal sentencing is June 26.
