California "landlords from hell" plead guilty to felonies

Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A couple that prosecutors dubbed the "landlords from hell" for going to scary lengths to drive tenants from a San Francisco apartment building have pleaded guilty to several felonies. 

Prosecutors said Wednesday that 37-year-old Nicole Macy and 38-year-old Kip Macy threatened to shoot tenants, changed locks, cleared apartments of belongings, and sawed holes in floors. They say it was all to drive renters out of their building in the increasingly pricey South of Market neighborhood. 

The Macys each pleaded guilty to two felony counts of residential burglary, stalking and attempted grand theft. 

The crimes occurred between 2005 and 2007 but the Macys had fled to Italy after their 2009 indictment. They reached a plea deal after they were extradited and will each be sentenced to four years and four months in prison.
