Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Callahan on Thursday sentenced 29-year-old Joseph Miller to 22 to 50 years in prison for second-degree murder and 25-year-old Nickella Reid to 10 to 15 years for involuntary manslaughter.

Miller and Reid pleaded guilty last month to those and other lesser charges.
