Rochester, N.Y. - A convicted Rochester drug dealer was convicted Friday of a double homicide - the same day he was sentenced to life in prison.
Kevin Lamont Anderson, aka "Cuda", 40, had been convicted by a jury of selling cocaine, money laundering, and owning a drug house. Anderson was sentenced to life in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.
