Jaycee Lee Dugard kidnappers receive life sentences

A couple who kidnapped an 11-year-old girl from California and held her captive for 18 years have been told they will spend the rest of their lives in prison.

Jaycee Lee Dugard was abducted by Phillip and his wife Nancy Garrido.

A judge said their actions were "evil and reprehensible".

Jaycee's mother read out a statement on her daughter's behalf in which she said she "hated every second of every day for those 18 years".

Alistair Leithead reports.
