CLEVELAND, Ohio A duo that prosecutors referred to as "tag team" serial rapists agreed to serve 30 years each in prison after evidence from previously untested rape kits linked them to the unsolved sexual assaults of three women.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Steven Gall Wednesday sentenced Michael Perry and Thomas Nicholson to the lengthy prison terms that will be served, in part, while they finish serving time for rapes they were convicted of more than a decade ago.

Perry, 40, and Nicholson, 39, were charged in 2002 and later convicted of breaking into a home on East 90th Street where they raped two women and a 16-year-old girl at gunpoint. Both had a little less than a decade still to serve on those sentences.

But the pair had not been connected to three other rapes that also happened around the same time in 2001.
