BROOKLYN - Two of the men convicted in the death of NYPD Detective Peter Figoski have been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Nelson Morales and Kevin Santos learned their fate after being convicted on murder and robbery charges.

Prosecutors say Morales was the mastermind behind a five-person home robbery that led to the fatal shooting of the then-officer in 2011. Santos had meanwhile kicked down a door and waited in a car during the crime.

Triggerman Lamont Pride was previously sentenced to 45 years to life in prison. The accused getaway driver was cleared of all charges, and another man struck a plea deal promising to testify against the others.
