The Supreme Court is ordering Arizona judges to reconsider life sentences with no chance of parole for five inmates who were convicted of murder for crimes they committed before they turned 18.

The court on Monday said the state judges did not pay sufficient attention to high court rulings that held that life sentences for young killers should be imposed only rarely.

The state courts ruled in all five Arizona cases before the Supreme Court's most recent ruling on juvenile sentences in January.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented from Monday's order.
