    After hearing from two badly burned children - one of whom lamented that her scars keep her from being "like any other girl" - a Chicago judge on Friday sentenced the couple who set their home on fire to lengthy prison terms.

    Written statements from the sisters, ages 5 and 8, were heard during two days of sentencing hearings that drew tears from those in attendance.

    Afterward, U.S. District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer sent 26-year-old Margarita Gonzalez to prison for 25 years. Her accomplice, Rafael Polanco, received a 17-and-a-half year sentence.
