Prison Sentences Handed Down in Two Separate Murder Cases

Two people are headed to prison at the conclusion of separate murder trials in Springfield.


23-year-old Samaria Williams has been sentenced to 30 years after pleading guilty to smothering her one-year-old daughter.


The judge in the case ruled that Williams was mentally ill at the time of the killing.


As a result, she will still go to prison, but will be able to receive mental health treatment behind bars.


In an unrelated case, 41-year-old Prie Patterson has been sentenced to 31 years following his guilty plea in the 2010 beating death of Larry Boyer.


Prosecutors say Boyer was killed in his apartment during a robbery.
