GREENBELT, Md. (AP) – Authorities say a man awaiting trial in the deaths of a nurse and her 20-year-old daughter has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for crimes committed during dozens of armed home invasions and burglaries in the Maryland suburbs of the nation’s capital.

Jason Scott was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Greenbelt. Scott was convicted in July of crimes including armed carjacking and stealing firearms. Prosecutors say the crimes were committed during dozens of burglaries and armed home invasion robberies.

Prosecutors say Scott is a former UPS worker who had used a database at his workplace to target homes to burglarize.

Scott faces separate murder charges in the deaths of Delores Dewitt and her daughter, Ebony. Their bodies were found in a burning car in March 2009.
