A teenager who killed Johny Allen, a real estate agent in Nashville , was sentenced to 51 years to life for the murder.Â Cyntoia Brown, 16 at the time, supposedly committed the murder just for the â€œthrill of itâ€ after she ran away from a group home.
A Nashville judge decided Tuesday that 51 years in prison before being eligible for parole is enough for a teenager who robbed and murdered a real estate agent.
In August a Nashville jury convicted Cyntoia Brown, 18, of first-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery after siding with prosecutors who argued that the teen killed Johnny Allen two years earlier for the “thrill of it.”
â€¦The first-degree murder charge carries an automatic life sentence of 51 years in prison before release eligibility. On Tuesday, Davidson County Circuit Court Judge Randall Wyatt sentenced Brown to 20 years in prison on the robbery charge, but ruled that it would be served simultaneously with the life sentence. via the Tennessean
