Lancaster man gets 2nd murder sentence in 1 week

For the second time in a week, a central Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to prison time in a murder case.

Lancaster County Judge Howard Knisely on Wednesday imposed a maximum sentence of 20 to 40 years on 29-year-old David Jordan of Lancaster Township in the December 2009 stabbing death of 25-year-old Lemar Lewis.

Knisely said that term will be consecutive to the life sentence imposed Monday on Jordan in the 2004 murder of Heather Nunn, who was shot execution-style as her children took a bath upstairs.

The (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era says Jordan told the judge Wednesday that he acted in self-defense when he stabbed Lewis. He said "I don't have a hard heart. I'm not a killer." Jordan said Monday he was innocent of Nunn's death.
