One of the five people accused in the death of 15-year-old Seath Jackson has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.  19-year-old Charlie Kay Ely was convicted of first-degree murder last month for her role in the killing.  Jackson was in Ely’s home April 17th when he was beaten, tied up and shot.  He body was then burned, and the remains were cut up and disposed in buckets.

Four others, aged 15 to 20 years old, are facing murder charges.  Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against 19-year-old Michael Bargo who they identified as the shooter.
