A British judge sentenced three men to life in prison for killing an Indian-born businessman and four members of his family - a crime that attracted international attention.
Prosecutors say convicted drug dealer Kenneth Regan and accomplices William Horncy and Peter Rees murdered millionaire businessman Amarjit Chohan in an attempt to take over his freight company.
Regan and Horncy abducted and murdered Mr. Chohan, his wife, two young sons and mother-in-law, who disappeared in February 2003. The bodies of the businessman, his wife and her mother were later found floating in the sea. The two boys have never been found.
Reading the verdict Tuesday, the presiding judge called the crimes "uniquely terrible." He said Regan and Horncy do not face the possibility of release from prison.
