THE BRONX - A Bronx man convicted of killing a woman and her daughter 25 years ago was finally sentenced on Wednesday.

Selina Cooper, 26, and her daughter, Joi Little, 9, were murdered back in February 1988. Prosecutors say Robert Fleming raped the women and then killed them in their apartment. They say he and Cooper used drugs together and that he went ballistic once realizing his crack pipe was missing.

Fleming was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Fleming's DNA was found inside the victims, but he wasn't linked to the crimes until 2003.
