GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A Grand Forks man convicted of raping and robbing two female University of North Dakota students has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Twenty-one-year-old Antonio Matthews was accused of breaking into the women’s apartment a year ago, and raping and robbing them at gunpoint. A jury in August convicted him on felony counts of gross sexual imposition, robbery, terrorizing and felonious restraint.

Matthew’s defense attorney on Wednesday asked for a prison sentence of no more than 30 years. WDAZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1qBsnzf ) that Judge Sonja Clapp sided with prosecutors and gave Matthews the stiffest possible sentence.
