Man Sentenced To Life For Brutally Raping, Killing 18-Year-Old On Her Way To Church

A man was sentenced to life in prison on Monday for the brutal rape and murder of 18-year-old Zoe Hastings who was attacked in 2015  while returning a Redbox movie on her way to church. A jury took only six minutes to decide to give Antonio Cochran, 37, the life sentence, according to the New York Daily News. Cochran’s sister had begged them for mercy.

Initially, prosecutors sought the death penalty but changed their mind after finding out that Cochran is intellectually disabled. He will be eligible for parole in 30 years. There was no reaction from Cochran when he was sentenced. He had been convicted of murder just two days earlier.

Nearly three years ago, Hastings was abducted after stopping to return a movie at a Redbox, located in a Walgreens parking lot. She was then sexually assaulted before being slashed in her throat with a pocket knife according

Teen In ‘Slenderman’ Stabbing Sentenced To 25 Years In Mental Health Facility

One of the two Wisconsin teens responsible for the “Slenderman” stabbing has been ordered to spend the next 25 years in a state mental hospital, a judge decided on Thursday.

CNN reported that Anissa Weier, 16, will have to spend at least three years inside Winnebago Mental Health Institute before there is any chance of her being discharged. Then, after that, it is possible for her to be released into outpatient care. Weier’s lawyer, Maura McMahon, is hoping for that future.

“If she is continuing on doing well, taking any medication that is required, meeting with her therapist […] I’m hoping going to college, getting a job, all the wonderful things that she wants to do, she’ll remain out of custody but being supervised by her agent,” she said.

The teenager took a plea deal earlier this year, pleading guilty attempted second-degree homicide due to mental illness.
