A brother and sister from Kansas City were sentenced to life in prison for their involvement in a 2013 homicide.
Monique Ransom and her brother, Omar T. Muhammad, were sentenced Friday to life in prison for the December 2013 fatal shooting of 33-year-old Eric Harrell.
Ransom and Muhammad were convicted in separate trials of second-degree murder and armed criminal action. On Friday, a judge sentenced Ransom and Muhammad to life in prison for the murder conviction and 15 years on the armed criminal action conviction.
Muhammad, 25, was also sentenced to an additional seven years in prison for receiving stolen property. The sentences will run concurrently, prosecutors said.
According to court documents, Ransom, 37, and her brother got into an argument with Harrell during an attempted robbery and shot him multiple times in the 2500 block of Quincy Avenue. The day before, Ransom was arrested after a dispute with Harrell. As she was being released from jail she reportedly told jailers: “I’m going to kill this ... Eric. I’m going to be back.”
