Armed robbers get life

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Three armed robbers will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.   Nineteen-year-old Daniel Lofton, 18-year-old Jermaine Lofton, and 20-year-old Jarmario Shuler pleaded guilty this week.

Back in December 2006, they followed a Decatur County man home in the middle of the night and forced their way into his home.  District Attorney Joe Mulholland set the scene.  "Two guys approach, one has a pistol. They say go inside, gets inside they say give me all you're money. They pistol whip him, get him inside. His wife's sleeping, they wake her up say give us all you're money, give us your guns.  He's got some guns in a gun cabinet so they grab some guns."

They also woke a teenage son and robbed him.  Less than a month later, the three men used one of the rifles they stole in the home invasion to hold up a Bainbridge convenience store.

Shuler and the Lofton brothers were all sentenced to life in prison.
