A North Carolina man has been sentenced to two life terms plus 45 years for fatally shooting two men outside a mid-town Baltimore bed-and-breakfast.

Twenty-nine-year-old Quinton Bass of Raleigh was sentenced this week in Baltimore Circuit Court, according to a news release sent Thursday from the State's Attorney's Office. He had been convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and other offenses in the August 2012 slaying of 40-year-old Alex Ulrich and 56-year-old Larry Peterson.

Prosecutors say Bass shot Ulrich and Peterson in front of Peterson's bed-and-breakfast. Authorities say the men did not have any money to give the would-be robber, and Bass fired at them.

Ulrich died later that day. Peterson died nearly two years later.
