OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- Two people have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a plot to beat a 69-year-old Shawnee man to death.
One of those sentenced Thursday, 23-year-old Nicole Rose Carter, was the victim's stepdaughter. She was sentenced to 12 years and 11 months in prison. Twenty-four-year-old Adam Hersh of Kansas City was sentenced to 19 years and six months. They had pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
The Kansas City Star reports Carter and her mother recruited Hersh to beat the man with a baseball bat.
Denise Davey, Carter's mother and victim's wife, is serving 48 years in prison. Hersh's sister, Whitney Hersh, previously was sentenced to six years.
