Mr Vincent had lived with the Griffiths at Southfield Road, Scartho.
A post-mortem examination revealed he had been tortured in the days leading up to his death.
A fourth man, Luke Griffiths, 19, was jailed for 26 years for murder and perverting the course of justice.
Matthew Frow, 31, of Southfield Road, Scartho, was acquitted of murder but was sentenced to 15 years for causing grievous bodily harm, perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
