COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The last two defendants in a Columbia home invasion that caused the death of an accomplice have been sentenced.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Le3mWi ) 23-year-old Darrius K. Edwards was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison for the April 2014 death of 44-year-old Derrick Brookins. Another defendant, She’aun Prince, was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison. A third defendant, Deshai Richardson, was sentenced June 9 to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors say the three suspects went with Brookins to a Columbia home planning to steal money and marijuana.

During a confrontation, the homeowner, Reginald Bentley III, drew a gun and fatally shot Brookins, and injured Edwards.
