3 of 4 men get life sentences in abduction, slaying of 2 Detroit-area women earlier this year

The judge has ordered life sentences for three people convicted in the deaths of two Detroit-area women who were abducted, killed and buried in a park.

Wayne County Judge Vonda Evans called one man a "merciless mercenary" and another an "architect of death." Reginald Brown, cousin Jeremy Brown and Brandon Cain face mandatory life in prison without parole.

Brian Lee proclaimed his innocence before he was sentenced Friday to at least 45 years in prison for second-degree murder.

Hamtramck residents Abreeya Brown and Ashley Conaway were stuffed in a car trunk at gunpoint before they were killed in February. Police believe they were targeted for informing authorities about an earlier shooting.

A fifth defendant was sentenced last week to at least 20 years in prison.
