Under U.S. Supreme Court decisions, five inmates serving life sentences for crimes committed as juveniles in New Hampshire are getting a chance at eventual release.

The rulings affect five men sentenced to life in New Hampshire. They are Eduardo Lopez, Robert Dingman, Robert Tulloch, Michael Soto and Steven Spader. Altogether, they were convicted in the deaths of four men and three women who were fatally shot or stabbed between 1991 and 2009.

Spader was resentenced to life without parole in 2013 after refusing to attend his hearing. The other four will be resentenced by judges in the counties where the crimes occurred.

Juveniles can still be certified to stand trial as adults, but they will no longer automatically be sentenced to life without parole for crimes that carry that sentence.
