DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A woman has been sentenced to life in prison for robbing and fatally beating her 86-year-old grandmother in southwest Ohio.
The Montgomery County prosecutor says 25-year-old Aisha (eye-EESH'-ah) Sanders of Centerville won't be eligible for parole until she has served at least 28 years in prison. Her sentence announced Tuesday includes three years for aggravated robbery.
Her grandmother, Mary Muha, was found dead in her home in the Dayton suburb of Washington Township on Dec. 20, 2011. The prosecution says Sanders stole her grandmother's car and television, then sold the TV for money to buy drugs.
Defense attorney Carl Goraleski says Sanders is more sober now and isn't the remorseless killer the prosecution made her out to be.
Goraleski says he expects her case will be appealed.
