    Two Philadelphia men who shot and killed a man during a Delaware home invasion have been sentenced to prison.

    Local news outlets report the Delaware Department of Justice says 23-year-old Saleem Shabazz and 24-year-old Matthew Harrington broke into a Rodney Village home and killed 52-year-old Clifton Leager in October 2015.

    Shabazz received a 34-year sentence after pleading guilty to charges including murder and home invasion. Harrington pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced 25 years.

    Authorities say Leager's 21-year-old son Jacob Leager is charged with manslaughter, as he allegedly used a handgun Shabazz and Harrington dropped while fleeing the home invasion to fatally shoot their getaway driver 18-year-old Haley Henwood.

    Leager's son pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and had his 8-year prison sentence suspended for time already served.
