FORT WORTH, Texas - A North Texas man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for a 2010 crime spree that left a deliveryman dead.

A judge in Fort Worth on Tuesday accepted the plea deal from Jose Ramos Jr.

Ramos pleaded guilty to capital murder in the June 29, 2010, fatal shooting and robbery of Ruben Martinez outside a Fort Worth convenience store.

Ramos still faces a capital murder charge in the slaying hours later of Nancy Weatherly of Godley during a robbery.

A jury in March convicted Mark Anthony Soliz of killing Weatherly and sentenced him to death.

Ramos on Tuesday also pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, burglary and deadly conduct during the crime spree. He received two life prison terms and a 20-year sentence, to be served concurrently.
