PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Two of the five people who pleaded guilty for their roles in a violent home invasion last summer near Providence College are going to prison.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin announced Tuesday that Superior Court Justice Robert D. Krause sentenced Providence residents Miguel Perez and Evan Watson to 40 years in prison each. Perez must serve 20 years with the remainder suspended and Watson must serve 30.

Perez and Watson both pleaded guilty earlier this month to burglary, conspiracy, weapons and assault charges.

Tommy Ngo and Vypatda Sophan of Providence and Venessa Potter of Central Falls have also pleaded guilty for their involvement in the July 2014 home invasion. They are awaiting sentencing.

The prosecution says Perez and Watson shot and injured two residents while attempting to burglarize the home.
