Ohio Man Sentenced To Death For Craigslist Plot
A self-styled street preacher who teamed up with a high school student in a deadly plot to lure men with bogus Craigslist job offers has been sentenced to death.
A judge in Akron sentenced 53-year-old Richard Beasley on Thursday. The jury that convicted him recommended last week that he be executed.
Beasley was convicted of teaming up with a teenager in 2011 to lure men with offers of farmhand jobs in southeast Ohio. Three men were killed and a fourth wounded.
The co-defendant, then 16, was too young to face the death penalty. Brogan Rafferty was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole on his conviction last year.
