San Manuel siblings sentenced for murder plot
Two members of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians of California were sentenced for their roles in a murder-for-hire plot.

Stacy Cheyenne Barajas-Nunez and her brother, Erik Barajas, received electronic monitoring and five years of supervised probation for their roles in the crime. They could have faced life in prison but reached a plea deal with the San Bernardino County District Attorney.

Leonard Epps, the intended victim of the murder, said the punishment wasn't harsh enough. He is suing the siblings, along with a Mexican Mafia leader, for $50 million because he said he has been forced to go into hiding and can't work.
