Horrell sentenced to life for beating death of Kankakee doctor

In Kankakee Court Thursday, Phillip Horrell was sentenced to life behind bars for the October 2012 murder of 81-year-old Dr. James Goldenstein. The doctor's wife, Betty. was also beaten.

Horrell expressed remorse, saying he was "sorry." Horrell plead guilty last year to the attack at the couple's home in Westwood Estate home. Prosecutors said the attack occurred just a couple of days after he was released from prison.
