Illinois woman faces sentencing in double murder

JOLIET - An Illinois woman has been sentenced to life in prison for her role in a double murder that happened in Joliet last year.

Bethany McKee, 20, was given the mandatory sentence on Tuesday.  In August, McKee was found guilty by a judge in the deaths of Terrance Rankins, 22, and Eric Glover, 22.  Authorities say Glover and Rankins were found strangled with plastic bags over their heads in a home in January 2013.  

McKee's attorneys' motions for a new trial were denied on Monday.  Joshua Miner, 26, was also convicted in the crime, and will be sentenced in November.  Another suspect in the crime, Adam Landerman, 21, is currently awaiting trial.  A fourth individual, Alissa Massaro, 20, pleaded guilty to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death in exchange for a 10-year prison sentence.
