June sentencings set for 2 Arizona killers

ALBQUERQUE, N.M. — June sentencings are set in federal court in
Albuquerque for two Arizona inmates and a co-defendant in the killings of an
Oklahoma couple during a New Mexico carjacking in 2010.

U.S. District Judge Judith Herrera on June 3 will sentence John McCluskey in
the 2010 killings of Gary and Linda Haas of Tecumseh.

McCluskey faced an automatic life sentence because a jury couldn’t unanimously
agree on a possible death sentence, but the Albuquerque Journal reported that a hearing is required so the victims’
families may speak.

Herrera on June 2 will sentence both Tracy Allen Province, who escaped with
McCluskey from a prison in Kingman, Arizona, and Casslyn Mae Welch, McCluskey’s
cousin and girlfriend. They pleaded guilty and testified during McCluskey’s
trial for the prosecution.
