FLORENCE, Ariz. -- An Arizona man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing two young girls.

Pinal County prosecutors said 27-year-old Jorge Molina was sentenced on Monday. He was found guilty last month on four counts of sexually related charges involving the 5- and 8-year-old girls.

An investigation into child abuse began in January 2013 and authorities found Molina had abused the girls for more than a year while their mother was at work.

Molina will not be eligible for parole for 89 years.
