Nineteen-year-old Uriah O'Carroll was ordered Monday to spend a minimum of 40 years behind bars for killing 20-year-old Marcus Eggleston and wounding Eggleston's mother in July 2011.

Authorities say O'Carroll and Eggleston were locked in a long-running dispute over who had fathered a woman's child when O'Carroll gunned down Eggleston and shot Sandy Lynn Falwell outside an Allentown home.

The Morning Call of Allentown reports O'Carroll tearfully apologized at his sentencing, saying he tried to turn the gun on himself that night but had run out of bullets.
