Two men from Zimbabwe charged with using the identities of hundreds of Americans to file false tax returns in a Cincinnati-based scheme have been sentenced.

Tawanda Marimbire was sentenced to about six years in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud. Robert Bungu was sentenced to two years after pleading guilty to engaging in illegal monetary transactions.

U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott handed down those sentences March 7 and ordered both to collectively pay $5 million in restitution.
