Kasey and Richard Klein were in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court Tuesday for sentencing in the deaths of Kasey's two young sons 2-year-old Anthony Tullius and 3-year-old Ayden Cecil.

Both Richard and Kasey were sentenced by Judge Mark Fleegle to twelve years in prison and ordered to pay over $7,000 each in restitution. The pair was found guilty of manslaughter and endangering children on February 2nd.

The family was camping at Ellis Dam this past June with the two boys when they turned up missing.

Ayden's body was recovered from the Muskingum River that same day, Anthony's body has never been found. Assistant Prosecutor Bob Smith argued that the couple's irresponsibility led to the deaths of the children.
