ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A judge in Elko County has sentenced a man to up to 56 years in prison for a crime spree in Nevada and Utah that included a robbery, kidnapping and botched car-jacking.
24-year-old Logan McFarland will have to serve at least 21 years before he is eligible for parole. He's also expected to be returned to Utah's Sanpete County at some point to face homicide charges in the slaying of an elderly couple found dead in their Mount Pleasant home on Dec. 31, 2011.
That's the same day police say McFarland and his 26-year-old girlfriend Angela Atwood tried to carjack a woman's car outside a casino in West Wendover.
The Elko Daily Free Press reports McFarland apologized during Wednesday's sentencing. Hill earlier was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
