Two Denham Springs residents will spend decades behind bars after pleading guilty to burglary charges.

Brian Fugler, 28, was sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to 23 counts of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.

Rachel Nicholson, 29, was sentenced to 25 years without the possibility of parole, probation, suspension of sentence or time off for good behavior after she was declared a habitual offender.

The District Attorney's Office has filed a habitual offender petition against Fugler as well.  A hearing is scheduled for November 14.

Prosecutors say the pair burglarized more than 20 homes in 2012.

Fugler and Nicholson were arrested on similar charges in 2010.
