2 plead guilty in teen's fatal Detroit shooting
Two women have pleaded guilty Wednesday in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old high school student last year, officials said.
Reginald Rose-Robinson, 17, was shot at about 6:20 p.m. Feb. 24, 2017, near Plymouth and Meyers roads on Detroit's west side.
Erica Italy Osburn, 25, and Sharnea Diamond McCoy, 21, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in connection with the crime, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.
In exchange for her plea, prosecutors are recommending a judge sentence Osburn, who police said shot the victim, to prison for 27-50 years.
They recommend McCoy, who drove Osburn as the crime was committed, serve 16-40 years plus two years for a felony firearm charge.
Both women, who each face life in prison, are scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 7.
Police said one of the women targeted Robinson, a student at Garden City’s Cambridge High, after someone allegedly directed a comment at her as he and a friend passed by them.
As the youths walked on the street shortly after the encounter, an unknown suspect riding inside of a black SUV fired shots at them, authorities said.
Robinson was struck by the gunfire and he was pronounced dead at the scene. His friend was not hurt in the shooting.
