Men get life in prison for killing couple, setting home on fire

Two men convicted in the deaths of a Knox County couple will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

A judge sentenced Benjamin Foust and Teddie Jones Friday in the deaths of Eric Marsh and Dena Baisden. The couple's bodies were found inside a burning home on Tower Drive in north Knoxville back in August 2011.

Jones received two consecutive life sentences for the murder convictions, plus 75 years on robbery and arson charges.

Foust received two consecutive life sentences for murder, plus 105 years.

A third suspect, Ashley Tanner, pleaded guilty in October to two counts of facilitation of felony murder. She received back to back 25 year sentences.
