A man who plotted to kill his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend will spend the next 20 years in jail.

A judge sentenced 20-year-old Eric Flukey on attempted murder and stalking charges yesterday. Flukey told friends to dig to holes in the desert where he would bury his ex and her boyfriend after he killed them.

Friends called police and they arrested the 20-year-old last may.

Flukey's attorney argued he never planned to carry out the plot and asked for a lesser sentence.

But the judge said he gave the 20-year-old a harsh sentence because he had five prior felonies.
