Two men sentenced to 19 years for murder

A court in Brno on Wednesday sentenced two men to 19 years in prison for the murder of an ex-police officer. The court said the two men shot their victim dead in front of his home in Brno in June, 2010. The murder was a contract killing ordered by a Brno businessman who was also arrested but committed suicide while in jail. The former policeman allegedly ran an extortion ring whose members are facing trial.
