NEWARK, N.J. —

A reputed gang member has been sentenced to 300 years in prison for the slayings of a woman and three teenage girls at a New Jersey home nearly four years ago.

Forty-year-old Rolando Terrell had been convicted in July on four counts each of murder and felony murder in the September 2008 slayings in Irvington. Prosecutors say Terrell and another man robbed and shot the victims, then set their house on fire.

Terrell had previously received a life sentence after being convicted last year of related robbery, arson conspiracy and weapons offenses. He has denied being at the scene when the crimes occurred.

Killed were 40-year-old Candes McLean; her daughter, Talia, and her niece, Zaykiyyah Jones, both 18; and 13-year-old Latrisha Carruthers-Fields.
