2 sentenced to life in prison after Craigslist killing

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (WLNS)- A 20-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison after helping his half-sister kill a man she found on Craigslist.

The Macomb Daily reports that Demonte Easterling of Harper Woods was given life behind bars after being convicted of murder and other charges.

Earlier this month, his half-sister Bria Blackmon was given a no parole sentence in the same case.

Blackmon and Easterling were convicted of murdering 57-year-old Micheal Freeland in February.

Police say Freeland was beaten with a 15-pound weight and that his credit cards and personal items were found in Blackmon’s home

Freeland met Blackmon after he placed an ad on Craigslist seeking a woman to have a baby.
