Life Sentences For 2 Men Who Terrorized Family

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (AP) _ Two men who terrorized a central Florida couple and their son for two days have been sentenced to life in prison.

A judge handed down the sentence Wednesday for 22-year-old Victor Sanchez and 27-year-old Miguel Diaz Santiz.

A jury convicted Sanchez on charges including burglary, kidnapping and armed robbery in February.

Santiz pleaded no contest in February.

Authorities say the men, along with 21-year-old Oscar Diaz Hernandez and a woman who is thought to have fled the country, broke into a Winter Garden home in November 2009 and took a pregnant woman, her husband and 5-year-old child
hostage.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/IZQsjr ) reports the woman escaped after two days by jumping out a second-story window.

She was wounded by a gunshot from an intruder.
