CLAY COUNTY, Fla. –
A man convicted of killing two people at a nightclub in Fleming Island several years ago is now serving two life sentences in prison on second-degree murder charges.
Cornelius Walston, 30, has been behind bars since 2009 in the stabbing deaths of David Smith and Kevin Martin. He was convicted in April and sentenced Friday morning in a Clay County courtroom.
“It’s frustrating. It’s been too long. It should have never been this long,” said Victoria Deloera, who said she was Martin’s best friend. “It should have never happened and he’ll find justice.”
