One of five men accused of storming into a South Bend home last December and killing a woman will spend more than a century in prison for the crime.
Lee Griffin, 19, was sentenced today to 115 years behind bars after he was found guilty of felony murder, robbery and burglary.
It all unfolded two days after Christmas of 2012 when five people were stabbed inside a home in the 1000 block of N. Michigan St. When police arrived, the suspects were trying to flee with items stolen from the house.
Days later, one of the victims, Sandra Price 67, died from a stab wound to the neck.
Griffin’s four accomplices, Walter Neely, 48, Khawann Lamar, 22, Nate Coley, 19, and Gemari Cotton, 18, were also charged for their roles in the deadly home invasion.
Neely was sentenced to 115 years in prison while Lamar is serving a 65-year sentence.
Both Coley and Cotton are scheduled to go to trial next month.
