INDIANAPOLIS An Indianapolis man who pleaded guilty to his role in the shooting deaths of a man and his 7-year-old niece has been sentenced to 110 years in prison.

Twenty-six-year-old Jeremy Priel was sentenced Friday in the December 2011 slayings of Kyleigh Crane and her 21-year-old uncle, Jeremy Crane, who were found shot to death in a home on Indianapolis' far east side. Priel had pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in their killings.

His 24-year-old co-defendant, Michael Bell, has also pleaded guilty to two counts of murder. He's expected to be sentenced Aug. 9 to 100 years in prison.

The victims' family considered Bell a close friend and Kyleigh called him "Uncle Mike." The victims were slain during a robbery that authorities say netted the men about $40.
