FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Two former Texas high school football players have been sentenced to prison for the death of a 17-year-old girl who was their accomplice in a botched robbery.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Saturday (https://bit.ly/1lxURen ) that 23-year-old Curtis Fortenberry pled guilty in the death of Claudia Hidic. Her body was found after a June 2012 shootout in a suburban home. Fortenberry has been sentenced to 33 years in prison. Police say it was a bullet from Fortenberry’s weapon that hit Hidic.

Fortenberry’s football teammate, 23-year-old Terrance Crumley, has pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and theft. He has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Crumley and Fortenberry were football players in 2008 at North Crowley High School. They had received football scholarships at East Central University in Oklahoma.
