A Waukesha man was sentenced to two concurrent 12-year-prison sentences Monday for the heroin overdose deaths of a man and a woman, according to court records.

Kevin S. Cobus, 27, was also sentenced to two concurrent eight-year terms on extended supervision in the deaths of Jamie L. Hansen, 24, of Muskego, and Cody C. Riggs, 26, of Delafield, according to the records.

Cobus was convicted April 4 of two counts of first-degree reckless homicide by delivery of drugs.

He had been accused of supplying heroin to Hansen, who died July 12, 2011, and Riggs, who died Jan. 6, 2011.
