KC man gets lengthy sentence in burglary, rape

LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man was sentenced to three life terms plus 325 years for taking part in a home invasion, rape and burglary.

Twenty-five-year-old Anthony L. Tabon was sentenced Friday for the July 24, 2009 crime in north Kansas City. The sentences will run consecutively.

Taborn was one of two men arrested and charged in the crime. His co-defendant, Taurian J. Burton of Kansas City, was convicted in January and sentenced to three life terms plus 165 years.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/sSPiOl) that the two men forced their way into the home and tied up and beat the two victims. They also both raped the woman.

They were arrested the next day while trying to sell stolen items at pawn shops.
