A Quad Cities man currently serving two life sentences for killing a Davenport janitor will now be re-sentenced.

Nearly a decade ago, when Christopher Langley was 16-years-old, he was convicted of murdering 53-year-old Mark Willis. Prosecutors say Langley and two other teens beat and stabbed Willis to death, left his body in a creek, and took off in his car for Florida.

Iowa’s Court of Appeals has called for Langley to be re-sentenced after both state and federal courts found automatic life sentences for juvenile killers can be considered cruel and unusual.

No date has been set yet for a re-sentencing hearing.
