2 convicted in torture, murder of 2 teens face sentencing

Two men convicted in the 2012 slayings of two Westland teens who authorities say went into the city to buy drugs were sentenced to life in prison without parole Wednesday morning.

Twenty-six-year-old Fredrick Young and 24-year-old and Felando Hunter were arrested last year. They were convicted in December of first-degree murder, torture and armed robbery in the deaths of 17-year-old Jourdan Bobbish and 18-year-old Jacob Kudla.

The teens were missing for five days before their bodies were found in a trash-strewn field overgrown by weeds near Detroit's city airport, not far from the drug house where they were forced into a car's trunk in July 2012. They'd been shot in the head.
