Bolivar, Tenn.

The widow and mother of a Mississippi man who kidnapped two Tennessee girls and murdered their mother and sister have pleaded guilty to their roles in the crimes.

WMC-TV reports Teresa Mayes pleaded guilty Friday to second degree murder in the deaths of Jo An Bain and her 14-year-old daughter Adrienne. She also pleaded guilty to kidnapping in the April 2012 abduction of sisters Alexandria and Kyliyah, who were 12 and 8 at the time.

Mayes was sentenced to 35 years at the hearing in Bolivar. Her mother-in-law, Mary Mayes, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and was sentenced to 13.5 years.

The women helped Adam Mayes, who was on the run with the younger girls for two weeks before he killed himself as authorities closed in.
