Two Tulsa men convicted by a Tulsa District Court jury Tuesday of home invasion burglaries and robberies have been sentenced to hundreds of years in prison.

Edwin Jermaine Daniels was convicted of 6 separate armed robberies in June and July of 2012 and sentenced to a total of 307 years in prison. Michael Darnell Hilliard was convicted of 3 of those robberies and possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony and sentenced to a total of 310 years in prison. Hilliard was acquitted of charges in three of the robberies.

Charges included Robbery with Firearms, Attempted Robbery with Firearms, First-Degree Burglary, Kidnapping and Assault with a Mask. Assistant District Attorneys Ben Fu and Kali Strain prosecuted.

Formal sentencing is scheduled Dec.16.

Daniels is also charged in a separate case with First-Degree Murder in the May 2012 shooting death of Kayla Ferrante, a Memorial High school graduate shot in a drive-by shooting as she returned home from graduation festivities. Police theorize the car she was riding in was mistaken for that of a rival gang member of Daniels.
