Two people convicted in an Arizona prison break and a double homicide in New Mexico have been sentenced to prison.

Federal prosecutors said Tracy Allen Province, 46, was sentenced Monday to five consecutive terms of life imprisonment without the possibility of release.

They said Casslyn Mae Welch, 47, got a 40-year prison sentence.

Province and Welch were accused of participating in the plot to carjack and kill a retired Oklahoma couple.

Arizona prison escapee John McCluskey was convicted of kidnapping and killing Gary and Linda Haas, of Tecumseh, in August 2010. He is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.

Welch is McCluskey’s cousin and girlfriend. She pleaded guilty to helping McCluskey and Province escape from a prison near Kingman, Ariz., in July 2010.
