DENVER (AP) - Two brothers who pleaded guilty for their role in the killings of five people at a Denver bar are headed to prison.
Twenty-eight-year-old Joseph Hill was sentenced Friday to life without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to five counts of first-degree murder in the 2012 slayings at Fero's Bar. The Denver Post reports that 26-year-old Lynell Hill was sentenced to 70 years in prison.
The sentences were part of plea deals with prosecutors. The brothers also agreed to testify against a third suspect being prosecuted in the case, Dexter Lewis.
A fourth man who was with them was a federal informant in another case and hasn't been charged.
