CLEVELAND- Two people were sentenced to time in prison on Friday for the murder of a Cleveland man.
Michael Days was shot and killed on Nov. 12 when a masked man forced his way into his house on West 46th Street. Days’ girlfriend, Pamela Lawson, was home with three young children at the time and called 911.
At first, investigators believed Lawson was a victim, but later discovered she was plotting Days’ death over text messages with Lekev Spivey, 23, the prosecutor’s office said.
“Pamela Lawson and Lekev Spivey showed a brazen disregard for human life. Instead of breaking up with her boyfriend, Lawson chose to have him killed,” assistant prosecuting attorney Anna Faraglia said in a news release on Friday.
Lawson, 31, and Spivey pleaded guilty to aggravated murder on May 29. On Friday, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Janet R. Burnside sentenced Lawson to 33 years to life in prison. Spivey received 28 years to life.
