Two members of an Elk Grove Village trio who police say robbed several Mount Prospect homes last year pleaded guilty to the charges Tuesday in a Rolling Meadows courtroom.
In exchange for their guilty pleas to multiple charges of residential burglary, Cook County Judge Kay Hanlon sentenced Richard J. McCann, 34, to 10 years in prison and Lizette M. Norman, also 34, to four years in prison for the class 1 felony.

Both defendants received credit for 112 days in custody.
McCann's criminal background made him eligible for an extended sentence of six to 30 years on the burglary charge. He also pleaded guilty to possessing heroin, for which he received a three-year sentence to run concurrently with the burglary sentence.
Norman, of the 400 block of Perry Drive, drove McCann, also of the 400 block of Perry Drive, and another man to the homes on June 30 and July 24, 2012, and waited in the car while the men burglarized the homes, said Assistant State's Attorney Mike Clarke.
The stolen items included electronic equipment, tools, DVDs and car accessories, which the defendants sold at resale shops and other stores, Clarke said. Police surveillance helped identify the defendants. Both Norman and McCann made statements admitting their involvement, Clarke said.
Burglary and possession of a controlled substance charges are still pending against Ryan J. Bloom, 23, also of the 400 block of Perry Drive. Bloom appears in court next month.
