    House Arrest for San Francisco Granite Company Owner After Worker Deaths
    NBC Bay Area, File

    The owner of a San Francisco granite company has been sentenced to house arrest and probation in connection to the death of two workers who were crushed by a large slab of granite while on the job.

    The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Meng Peng, the owner of the now-closed Galaxy Granite, was sentenced Tuesday to one year of house arrest, three years of probation and ordered to pay unspecified restitution.

    He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of felony involuntary manslaughter and three labor code violations.

    Peng and his employees 46-year-old Hector Vazquez, of Oakland, and 53-year-old Philip Marich, of South San Francisco, were unloading the slab from a container truck on Feb. 7, 2014, when it fell and killed Marich and Vazquez.
