OMAHA, Nebraska — A Nebraska woman has been sentenced to 50 to 70 years in prison for fatally shooting a woman in the chest at a house party while high on methamphetamine.
The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1w1KEhl ) 31-year-old LaToya Ross was sentenced Tuesday for killing 41-year-old Dawn Truman at an Omaha house party in December 2013. Authorities say Ross accused Truman of being a "snitch" and that the bullet pierced her heart. Truman died at the scene.
Ross confessed to the killing once she was sober. She pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of second-degree murder in a deal with prosecutors.
