DENVER - Two brothers were sentenced Friday in a case that involves the stabbing deaths of five people.

Joseph and Lynell Hill were in court on Friday for a fire and robbery at Fero's Bar and Grill in October 2012.

Lynell Hill pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, aggravated robbery and first-degree arson. He was sentenced to 70 years in prison on Friday.

Joseph Hill pleaded guilty to five counts of first-degree murder. He got life in prison with no possibility of parole on Friday.

Authorities say the Hill brothers as well as 23-year-old Dexter Lewis fled the bar with $170 after a robbery.

The victims were later identified as the bar's owner, Young Fero, 63; Daria M. Pohl, 22; Kellene Fallon, 45; Ross Richter, 29; and Tereasa Beesley, 45.

Lewis faces multiple counts, including first-degree murder, felony murder, robbery and arson. He could be sentenced to the death penalty. Lewis is not a part of Friday's proceedings.
