Life Sentences for 2 Men in Pregnant Woman Attack

By  | 

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- Two men have received life prison sentences for shooting and setting fire to a pregnant Detroit woman because one of the men didn't want another child.

A jury in May found 23-year-old Warren residents Jamal Rogers and Antonio Mathis guilty of attempted murder and conspiracy.

On Tuesday, Macomb County Circuit Judge Richard Caretti in Mount Clemens gave the men the maximum sentence of life with the possibility of parole.

Authorities say Rogers and Mathis abducted Latonya Bowman in May 2012, tied her up, set her on fire and shot her.

Police say Bowman was Rogers' former girlfriend, and he wanted her dead because he didn't want another child.

Bowman survived the attack and gave birth to a boy days later. She testified at the trial.
