One of two men convicted for the 2019 double homicide at the Mountain Valley Inn was sentenced on Tuesday in Missoula District Court.

Jonathan Whitworth will serve 2 concurrent 100 year sentences in the Missoula State Prison for two counts of deliberate homicides and one 20 year sentence for an assault with a weapon charge that will also run concurrently.

Whitworth along with Preston Rossbach both entered a room at the Mountain Valley Inn and shot three people.

Jason Flink and Megan McLaughlin were killed and a third victim Kaleb Williams survived the attack.

The sentence comes with parole availability in 30 years and is following the plea deal Whitworth accepted in August.

Preston Rossbach received a sentence of 60 years in the Montana State Prison last week for his involvement in the shooting.
