Two of the five men charged in connection with the 2008 killings of two women and two children were sentenced Friday.Zarumin Coleman, 24, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery and being a violent felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced to 60 years in prison.Donte Hobson, 32, also took a plea and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.The men helped plan a robbery, along with Ronald Davis, 33; Jasper Frazier, 39; and Tommy Warren, 27, at a house in the 3200 block of Hovey Street in 2008, seeking marijuana and money that wasn't there.Andrea Yarrell and Gina Hunt, both 24, and their children, Charlii Yarrell, 5 months, and Jordan Hunt, 23 months, were killed.Hobson's fingerprints were found on one of the guns that was recovered after the slayings, but police said he did not go inside the house or fire the weapon.Coleman drove the getaway car and picked up the gun used in the slayings, police said.In court he apologized for his role in the crime, but he told 6News' Derrik Thomas that 60 years was more than he deserved."I should have gotten 20 years because I didn't kill no kids. I didn't kill nobody," he said. "I didn't know nobody was going to get killed."Davis, who prosecutors claimed was one of two shooters, was sentenced to 245 years in prison. As part of a plea agreement reached with the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, the death penalty was not an option.Warren was sentenced to 10 years in prison and two years in community corrections. He also has two years probation from a previous burglary case.Frazier, the other suspected gunman, has also accepted a plea deal. His sentencing is set for Monday.
