SAN FRANCISCO — A software engineer and his real estate agent wife who terrorized their tenants in a twisted attempt to force them to move are back after fleeing to Italy, and each has accepted a four-year prison sentence and two strikes rather than face trial, Dist. Atty. George Gascon announced Wednesday.

Nicknamed the “landlords from hell,” Kip and Nicole Macy employed tactics “so outlandish and brazen” in attempting to clear their building of renters that “it sounds like the plot of a horror movie,” Gascon said.

In 2005 Kip, 38, and Nicole, 37, set in motion an “insane,” nearly two-year campaign against their tenants that “destroyed his career” and derailed their lives, Gascon said.

They each pleaded guilty to two felony counts of residential burglary, one felony count of stalking and one felony count of attempted grand theft.

In custody on $2-million bail apiece, they are scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 22.

    I think these two should consider themselves very lucky that they did make it to court, and received a jail sentence. I'm surprised that they didn't have a "accident" due to their actions toward tenants.

    The look on her face says it all. The dude was probably p***y whipped into it. She'll handle jail better than him.
