Brothers convicted of filing a false $2 million claim to the Boston Marathon victims' compensation fund using the name of a long-dead aunt face sentencing.

Branden Mattier, 23, and Domunique Grice, 28, are scheduled to be sentenced Monday.

The Boston brothers were convicted this month of conspiracy to commit larceny and attempt to commit larceny. Mattier also was convicted of identity fraud.

Prosecutors say the brothers submitted a claim to The One Fund claiming their aunt lost her legs in the April 15, 2013, bombing. The fund alerted authorities that the claim was suspicious. State police arrested Mattier when he accepted a fake check.

Prosecutors say the brothers planned to test drive a new Mercedes-Benz the day they received the check.
