A New York City doctor and her cousin will spend the rest of their lives in prison.Dr. Mazoltuv Borukhova and her cousin, Mikhail Mallayev, both received life in prison without the possibility of parole.

They plotted the killing of Borukhova's estranged husband.

Orthodontist Daniel Malakov was gunned down in a park in front of the couple's 4-year-old daughter.

The two were convicted last month of first-degree murder and conspiracy.

Prosecutors say Borukhova was distraught over temporarily losing custody. She hired her relative to kill Malakov for about $20,000 in October 2007.

Mallayev also was convicted of weapon possession - the gun and makeshift silencer used in the killing.
