Two teenagers convicted of killing 17-year-old Allie Saum last year are sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors say a group of teens confused Saum's truck with one they were trying to target.

Macio Palacio was sentenced to life without parole for 50 years. He's the one prosecutors say pulled the trigger.

Steven Gentry was sentenced to life without parole for 25 years. Investigators say he told Palacio to shoot. In addition to the life sentence, he will also serve more than 20 years for Attempted First Degree Murder and other charges.

Another defendant in the case, Andrew Woodring, pleaded no contest. He was set to be sentenced along with Palacio and Gentry, but filed a motion to withdraw his plea.

Two others, Daniel Sims and Jerome Forbes, are awaiting court appearances.
