Why to sentence a person for 515 years in prison?


Recently I was listening to news on a radio and I heard that some guy was sentenced for 515 years in prison. Also several years ago Bernard Madoff was sentenced for 150 years in prison. To me those two cases seem to be very weird and illogical, since it's obvious that nobody can live for so long. I wonder what is the point to sentence someone for such a long time? And what happens when they die?
