2 men to be sentenced for attack on pregnant woman

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -

Two men are to be sentenced for shooting and setting fire to a pregnant Detroit woman because one of the men didn't want another child.

A jury in May found 23-year-old Warren residents Jamal Rogers and Antonio Mathis guilty of attempted murder and conspiracy.

A sentencing hearing is set for Tuesday in Macomb County Circuit Court in Mount Clemens. The charges carry a punishment of up to life in prison.

Authorities say Rogers and Mathis abducted Latonya Bowman in May 2012, tied her up, set her on fire and shot her.

Police say Bowman was Rogers' former girlfriend, and he wanted her dead because he didn't want another child.

Bowman survived the attack and gave birth to a boy days later. She testified at the trial.
