ATLANTA (AP) — Two men have pleaded guilty to murder in the slayings of a pregnant woman and her fiance four years ago.

News outlets report that 44-year-old Andre Gay and 46-year-old Richard Wilson pleaded guilty Monday in the killings of 21-year-old Briana Brooks and 23-year-old Jeonta Brown.

A judge sentenced each man to multiple life sentences in prison.

The two were kidnapped for ransom from Brown's mother's home in DeKalb County in 2014. A prosecutor says Gay and Wilson believed someone in the family had come into money from an insurance settlement.

The couple was shot and left to die on the side of road. Brooks was taken to a hospital where doctors delivered her baby two months early. But neither Brooks for Brown survived.
