Teen Craigslist Murderer Faces Life In Prison< < Back to
UPDATE 11:17 A.M. Sentencing has been delayed for an Ohio teenager convicted in a plot to lure men desperate for work with phony Craigslist job offers.
An Ohio teen is set to be sentenced Monday for his role in killing and robbing three men and trying to kill a fourth in a deadly Craigslist robbery scheme.
Brogan Rafferty, 17, of suburban Stow, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole when he is sentenced in an Akron courtroom.
Rafferty was convicted last week of murder and attempted murder.
Because he's a juvenile, he wasn't eligible for the death penalty.
Rafferty's co-defendant, 53-year-old alleged triggerman Richard Beasley of Akron, goes on trial in January.
He could face the death penalty.
The victims were targeted because they were older, single, out-of-work men with backgrounds that made it unlikely their disappearances would be noticed right away.
The incidences happened in Noble and Summit counties.
