SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A man once condemned to South Carolina's death row has been resentenced to life in prison.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports (http://bit.ly/ZlwmSw) that a judge on Monday sentenced 48-year-old Andre Rosemond of Lyman to two consecutive life sentences.

Rosemond was convicted in 1996 of killing his girlfriend, 42-year-old Christine Norton, and her 10-year-old daughter, Autumn. Mother and child were each shot twice in the head in 1993.

That sentence was overturned in 2009 by the state Supreme Court. The justices ruled that Rosemond's attorney failed to address the man's mental health during the sentencing phase of his trial.

Rosemond has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
