DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware prison officials say a convicted killer serving two life sentences for a 1982 double murder has died after testing positive for COVID-19.

Authorities said that 71-year-old Jackie R. Lovett died Wednesday at a Dover hospital of complications from hypothyroidism and COVID.  Lovett was tested for COVID-19 on July 5. Lovett was from Salisbury, Maryland. He was sentenced to life in prison without probation or parole for the drug-related killings of Lori Todd and Richard Bull.  Their bodies were found in a tributary of the Pocomoke River in Maryland. Both had been shot in the head.
