JACKSON COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

Monique Ransom and her brother, Omar T. Muhammad, have been sentenced to life in prison for the Dec. 2013 fatal shooting of Eric Harrell.

Jackson County juries earlier convicted Ransom of second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

On Friday, the judge sentenced Ransom and Muhammad each to life in prison for the murder conviction and 15 years for the armed criminal action conviction.

In addition, Muhammad was sentenced to seven years for a receiving stolen property conviction.

All sentences will run concurrently.

According to the probable cause statement, Ransom went to Harrell’s home with her brother and her boyfriend. While the boyfriend was outside the home, Ransom and her brother reportedly got into an argument with Harrell during an attempted robbery and they shot him multiple times, killing him.
