The last two defendants in the torture killing of a mentally challenged Pennsylvania woman have been sentenced to prison.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports 39-year-old Robert Masters received 30 to 70 years in prison, while his girlfriend, 30-year-old Peggy Miller, was sentenced to 35 to 74 years by a Westmoreland County judge on Monday.

Both had pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and other charges in the February 2010 death of 30-year-old Jennifer Daughter. She was tortured over two days before she was fatally stabbed in a Greensburg apartment about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
