The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports year-old Demonte Easterling of Harper Woods received the sentence Wednesday for his conviction on murder, robbery and other charges. Bria Corrine-Janelle Blackmon, 20, of Madison Heightsearlier this month was given a no-parole sentence in the case. Freeland met Blackmon after placing an ad on Craigslist seeking a woman to have a baby, according to police.
Freeland, who was beaten with a pound weight, was found dead in his home in the block of Andrew Dr, near 16 Mile Road and Van Dyke in Sterling Heights. A fire was set at his residence, police said, but an autopsy showed Freeland died before the fire started.
The fire, it was argued, had been set in an effort to cover it up. Defense attorney Rebekah Coleman said Blackmon got into a fight with Freeland after he pressured her for sex. Used under. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
