WOBURN, Mass. (AP) – A New Hampshire man has received two mandatory life sentences without parole for the killings of his ex-lover’s husband and another man at a Massachusetts business.

Sean Fitzpatrick was sentenced by a Middlesex Superior Court judge on Monday for the fatal shooting of 39-year-old Michael Zammitti Jr., owner of Allstate Concrete Pumping in Wakefield, after Zammitti’s wife ended their relationship.

Prosecutors said Fitzpatrick also killed an employee of the company, 54-year-old Chester Roberts, when he arrived at work just after Zammitti was shot.

Fitzpatrick was convicted Thursday in his second trial after the jury deliberated for more than a week. A jury deadlocked at his first trial last August.

Fitzpatrick claimed he was asleep at his home in Freedom, N.H., when the men were killed in March 2006.
