BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Two Brockton men have been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years for their roles in the 2013 stabbing death of a Taunton teen during a home invasion.

The Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/2cfe046 ) that Vladimir Verdieu and Eric Claudio pleaded guilty to charges including murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and armed home invasion.

Police responding to a home invasion report found two men suffering from stab wounds in May 2013.

Seventeen-year-old Jonathan Semedo died at a hospital. The other victim was treated and released for a neck wound.

Investigators determined Claudio and Verdieu participated in an armed robbery of the third-floor apartment under the direction of another man, who is scheduled to stand trial in December.
