    Updated:
    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Two Florida teenagers have been sentenced to ten years in prison for their role in the murder of a professional mixed martial arts fighter nicknamed "The Matzoh Brawler."

    Friends say Aaron Rajman, who wore a yarmulke in his MMA fights, was also dealing drugs and was targeted for the marijuana and cash he kept at home.

    On Monday, 18-year-old Summer Church and 20-year-old Jace Swinton each pleaded guilty to reduced charges of second-degree murder. The prosecution continues its case against Roberto Ortiz as the alleged shooter.

    The Palm Beach Post reports Church wasn't at the scene when Rajman was killed during a 2017 home invasion, but police say she was the mastermind. Police say a fight broke out after Ortiz and Swinton entered Rajman's home and Rajman was fatally shot.

    Rajman had a 2-2 record since becoming a professional fighter.
