Roanoke man to spend more than 40 years in prison for murders of two men in 2018



Roanoke, Virginia – A man of Roanoke will spend more than 40 years in prison following the murders of two men in October 30, 2018.

Dominic Townes received 8 years for using a gun to commit the crimes and two 17-year terms for each of the man he killed.

He was taken into custody the next day after he killed two men, 37-year-old Travis Turnage and 42-year-old Jacob Sallah, in the 600 block of Hanover Avenue in Roanoke.

Townes was found guilty for second-degree murder charges in July 2019.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Townes’ sentencing was delayed multiple times.

The daughters of both victims testified on Monday during Townes sentencing.
