PLACER COUNTY — Two twin brothers have been sentenced for their involvement in a deadly crash during a high-speed chase 2014 through Antelope.
Ruslan Glukhoy was sentenced to two consecutive live sentences. Roman Glukhoy was sentenced to 30 years to life.
The Glukhoy brothers, along with 21-year-old Yuriy Merkushev, were wanted for an alleged burglary in Auburn before leading authorities on a pursuit. Merkushev was initially with the twins, investigators say, but was not involved in the crash.
The chase ended when the brothers slammed into a car, killing 35-year-old Joe Luis Barriga-Tovar and his 14-year-old daughter, Anahi.
The Glukhoys were convicted in December 2016.
