    A Virginia couple has been sentenced to life in prison for the slayings of a West Virginia family.

    Lorie Ann Taylor-Keller and her husband, Nakia Keller, were sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg.

    The Fulks Run couple pleaded guilty to more than a dozen charges in June. The charges included crossing state lines to kill Taylor-Keller's ex-husband, 36-year-old Dennis "Chip" Taylor; his wife, 39-year-old Alliana Taylor; and her 5-year-old daughter, Kaylee.

    The victims were fatally shot and their home in Hardy County, W.Va., was burned in October 2009.
