DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Three of four Alabama fugitives involved in a standoff with law officers in North Dakota have been sentenced.

Judge Zane Anderson on Monday accepted plea agreements involving the three and denied motions from Angela Mink and Joshua Southwick to withdraw guilty pleas.

Southwick, Mink, her brother Ashton Mink, and his wife, Jacquelin faced felony charges in a Dickinson video store robbery and a shootout with police at a rural ranch. They were captured June 6. Authorities say Southwick and Ashton Mink had escaped from an Alabama prison on May 25 with help from the two women.

Angela Mink was sentenced Monday to serve 10 years in prison, and Southwick and Ashton Mink to 20 years each. Jacquelin Mink will serve 7½ years under the terms of her earlier plea deal, which involved her testifying against the others.
