HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) A judge has sentenced an Ohio teenager convicted in the torture beating of a mentally disabled woman to 44 years in prison.
Seventeen-year-old Cheyenne Blanton was sentenced Friday in Butler County Common Pleas Court.
Blanton and 17-year-old Joseph Nagle were accused of binding 19-year-old Ashley Clark in February and beating her for several hours. Prosecutors said the teens shaved Clark's head and soaked her in water before making her walk barefoot outside in the snow.
Blanton and Nagle each pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, felonious assault, kidnapping and vandalism.
Nagle's sentencing is set for Oct. 14. He could receive up to 59 years in prison.
