Amanda Knight was the woman who was tried and convicted for the home invasion murder of James Sanders in Washington state. As you may know Mr. Sanders posted an ad on craigslist selling a diamond ring which led to the home invasion where he was shot and killed.
Late last week the 22-year-old Knight was sentenced to 71 years in prison for her role in Mr Sanders’ death. She was the one who placed the phone call stating that she had an interest in the ring. She was also present at the time of Mr. Sanders’ murder.
Previously the gunman, Kiyoshi Higashi, was convicted and sentenced to 100+ years. The other two accused of being complicit in Mr. Sanders’ murder, Clabon T. Berniard and Joshua Reese, are still awaiting trial.
