DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two more men have been sentenced for their roles in a January 2011 firebombing of a Des Moines leasing office.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced Friday that District Court Judge James E. Gritzner sentenced 31-year-old Dentaro Andre Lee on Thursday to 5 years for conspiracy to commit malicious damage or destruction by use of explosive materials. Gritzner sentenced 36-year-old Robert Earl Bell to 4 years and 3 months for malicious use of explosive materials.

Their sentencing follows earlier convictions and sentencing of two other men involved, Jeremy Dennis and Gregory Harris.

The convictions stemmed from the Jan. 3, 2011, firebombing of the Deer Ridge Apartment Complex in Des Moines.

The Attorney's Office says the fire was an attempt to conceal a burglary that had occurred at the apartment complex.
