Illinois woman guilty of murder in robbery plot with friends

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 02:02
By Dawn Reiss JOLIET Ill. (Reuters) - An Illinois woman who helped lure two men to a drinking session to rob them for money for cigarettes, gasoline and cocaine, was found guilty on Friday of six counts of first degree murder after her friends allegedly strangled the two men. Will County Judge Gerald Kinney said Bethany McKee, 20, was guilty even though she did not physically participate in the killings, because she was aware of what was happening and did nothing to stop it. Terrance Rankins and Eric Glover, both 22, were robbed and strangled in a duplex in Joliet - a town outside Chicago - in January 2013. During a six-day bench trial - before a judge instead of a jury - prosecutors said McKee and three of her friends, Adam Landerman, 21, Alisa Massaro, 20, and Joshua Miner, 26, plotted to rob and kill the two men.
