A Pontiac couple convicted in the dragging death of a Kmart loss prevention officer has been sentenced to life in prison.
Forty-year-old James Woodworth and 20-year-old Samantha Lomasney apologized Tuesday during sentencing in an Oakland County court. They were convicted last month of first-degree felony murder in the January death of 36-year-old Greg Wainio.
Wainio was dragged and crushed as he tried to stop the couple from driving away from a Waterford Township Kmart store with $400 in CDs.
Defense attorneys had sought a lesser charge, saying the couple panicked and meant no harm. Prosecutors say their actions ended in first-degree murder.
The victim's brother John Wainio told Woodworth and Lomasney at Tuesday's hearing that he wants to see them die in jail.
