BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - A Goshen man was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for raping a 7-year-old girl, which led to a murder for hire plot.

Michael Gray pled guilty to two counts of murder for hire after he plotted to kill a seven year old girl and her mother to keep them from testifying during the rape trial.

Gray was sentenced to life in prison on the rape charge and an additional 20 years for conspiracy to commit murder.

His mother and girlfriend also pled guilty to conspiracy to commit murder. They could each get 10 years in prison when they are sentenced later this month.
