Bethany McKee, 20, will spend her natural life in prison after being sentenced for her role in the 2013 murders of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins.

Glover and Rankins, both 22, were strangled to death. Their bodies were found with plastic bags over their heads inside a home on Hickory Street in Joliet, Ill.

"She is the reason he was there," said Jamille Kent, Rankins' mother. "It would have never happened if she didn't bring him there."

McKee was found guilty in the murders by a judge in August. On Monday, her defense attorney's motion for a new trial was denied.

Joshua Miner, 26, the mastermind behind the murders, was found guilty. His sentencing is set for later this month.

Adam Landerman, 21, is also charged in the murders. He is awaiting trial.

A fourth suspect, Alissa Massaro, pleaded guilty to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death for which she received a 10-year prison sentence.

Defense attorneys argued that McKee did not physically harm the men, that she is mentally ill, had been abducted into a sex trafficking ring at 14 and had a history of substance drug abuse.

The envelope is handwritten.
