DENVER — A Denver man has been sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for stabbing and killing the mother of his children and her mother.

Angel Chavez, 28, was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of 25-year-old Maira Cordero and her mother, 45-year-old Raquel Cordero on July 22, 2016.
