INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Jeremy Priel agreed to a 110-year prison sentence on Friday for his part in the murders of Jeremy and Kyleigh Crane in Cumberland in 2011.
Priel pleaded guilty to two counts of murder as part of a plea agreement. Michael Bell also pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in April.
Prosecutors in the case decided in 2012 not to pursue the death penalty.
"If this is not a life sentence, it is so close to a life sentence that is satisfies our objective that the individuals who did this never get out of prison alive," Marion Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson said.
Police said the two men killed Jeremy Crane and his 7-year-old niece for two gaming systems that were later pawned for $40 and an ounce of pot.
Under Priel's plea agreement, he'd serve 110 years in prison. Prosecutors also expect Bell to receive a 100-year sentence. Priel's sentencing is scheduled for July 26, and Bell will be sentenced on Aug. 9.
"I always tell families there is nothing that the legal system can do. There is nothing that we can do to bring their loved one back," Robinson said. "We can simply hold someone accountable."
