DENTON (AP) - A North Texas jury has ordered 60 years in prison for the apparent mastermind in the 2010 abduction and robbery of a woman.

Investigators say Eileen Loskot of Double Oak was snatched during a staged car accident in the Dallas area. She was freed unharmed after being forced to drive hundreds of miles to Santa Rosa, N.M.

Matthew Casaus pleaded guilty to aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery. He was sentenced Thursday in Denton.

A co-defendant who pleaded guilty in January received a 30-year prison term. Another man was convicted in August and sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Investigators say Loskot was driving home from work in Dallas when she was snatched during an apparent random robbery.

Two of the men surrendered in Albuquerque, N.M. Casaus was caught in Texas.
