WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to up to 30 years in prison for her role in a robbery and shooting last year that killed a 20-year-old man in Winston-Salem.
Lenesia Monique Crump pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and armed robbery Thursday.
Prosecutors say Crump set up a robbery that led to the shooting of 20-year-old Timothy Christopher Revel on March 27, 2010. Revel died the next day at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Prosecutors say Crump needed money to pay a fine for a probation violation.
She was originally charged with first-degree murder.
Crump has agreed to testify against her co-defendant, 22-year-old Nicholas Marquis Dalton, whom prosecutors say was the triggerman. His trial is scheduled next month.
Prosecutors say the pair took $300 in cash and marijuana from Revel.
