NORTH CAROLINA WOMAN GETS 124 YEARS IN SLAYING
Dorthia Bynum, 18, was sentenced Monday to at least 124 years in prison for the kidnapping, sodomy and beating death of 10 year old Tiffany Long. Two boys, one 15 and the other 17, face trial in Tiffany's slaying. Tiffany knew the boys and Bynam. She was abducted and killed in
October 1998. According to the Associated Press, her body was discovered behind a vacant house where all three teens had once lived. Tiffany was held down and raped, then beaten with a bed rail. Bynum agreed to testify against the boys as part of a plea bargain and could have faced the
death penalty without the deal.
