Man Who Beheads 3-Year-Old Gets Life in Prison

By  | 

Kansas City, MO (WIBW) A man convicted of killing and beheading a 3-year-old girl known as "Precious Doe" was sentenced Friday to life in prison.

Harrell Johnson was convicted last month of first-degree murder in the 2001 death of Erica Green.

Te 29-year-old was the boyfriend of the girl's mother at the time. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty partly because Johnson agreed to drop a request his trial be moved out of Kansas City.
