STURGIS (AP) - The last of four suspects in a home invasion in Sturgis last November has been sentenced.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that 18-year-old Azariah Conley of Sturgis was sentenced to serve five years in prison on burglary and identity theft charges.

Three other suspects in the incident were sentenced earlier for various crimes including kidnapping, burglary, aggravated assault and theft. All are from Fort Collins, Colorado.

Eighteen-year-old Armando Valdivia was sentenced to serve 12 years, 19-year-old Moses Avila to serve seven years, and 18-year-old Elizabeth Mauk to serve 1 ½ years.

Authorities say three of the suspects broke into a home, and assaulted and taped up the resident because they wanted money owed them by her son. They then shot her repeatedly with a pellet gun.
