Latisha Frazier murder: Two more sentenced to prison
WASHINGTON (AP/ABC7) - Two people have been sentenced to prison in the kidnapping and slaying of a teenager in 2010.
Twenty-year-old Cinthya Proctor was sentenced to 21 years and 24-year-old Laurence Hassan was sentenced to 18 years on Friday. Both pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and kidnapping in the death of 18-year-old Latisha Frazier.
Prosecutors say Proctor and Hassan were part of a group who lured Frazier to an apartment and beat and choked her because they believed she had stolen money from one of them. The young mother's body was later placed in a garbage bin, and prosecutors say it's believed to be in one of two landfills in rural Virginia
Proctor and Hassan are the six and seventh people found guilty in the crime.
Johnnie Sweet was found guilty last month of first-degree felony murder in Frazier's death. Brian Gaither, 25, was sentenced in April to a 32-year prison term after pleading guilty to first-degree murder. Other defendants include Anneka Nelson, 18, Lanee Bell, 19, and Antoine McCullough, 27.
