SEATTLE (AP) – Two Canadian men were each sentenced Friday to three consecutive life prison terms for the bludgeoning deaths of one of the men’s parents and sister 10 years ago.

A jury convicted Atif Rafay and Glen Sebastian Burns in May of three counts of aggravated first-degree murder in the deaths of the Rafay family members. Prosecutors said the motive was money.

The life sentences carry no possibility of parole.

Lawyers for both men said they plan to appeal.
