BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) -

Two Pembroke brothers were sentenced Tuesday for their roles in the kidnappings of two Bryan County businessmen. A judge sentenced both Antonio Murray and Cecil "Red" Nelson to life in prison without parole.

The kidnappings took place in late 2011 and early 2012, one in Pembroke and the other in Richmond Hill. The businessmen were abducted at gunpoint and released after a ransom was paid.

Another man, Gary McDonald, also pled guilty to his role in the kidnappings. His sentencing date has not yet been set.
