Ronald Young, the man convicted of building and setting off a pipe bomb that killed Tucson businessman Gary Triano in November 1996, was resentenced Monday in Pima County Superior Court.

Young, 70, was convicted in March 2010 of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and first-degree murder and was sentenced to two life terms in prison without the possibility of parole by Judge Christopher Browning.

In 2012, the Arizona Court of Appeals upheld Young's convictions but decided he should be resentenced on the charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

Young was resentenced to 25 years to life in prison for the conspiracy charge.

Pamela Phillips, Triano's ex-wife, is accused of hiring Young to kill Triano and paying him with money she collected from his $2 million life insurance policy.

Phillips is set to go on trial next year.
