GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Two men who spent eight years on the run following a 2007 slaying in the Grand Rapids area has been sentenced.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1MuNHHE ) 27-year-old Juan Reyes on Wednesday was given life in prison in Kent County Circuit Court for second-degree murder in the fatal drive-by shooting of 22-year-old Douglas Pollok. Reyes also got prison time for other charges.

Reyes, who was accused of firing the shots, asked the judge for leniency. He was arrested in November along with his brother in Guadalajara, Mexico.

His brother, Eric Santiago, was sentenced on Wednesday to a year in jail for being an accessory after the fact to a felony. Santiago was accused of driving the vehicle Reyes was in and apologized before being sentenced.
