KENOSHA, Wis. (WTAQ) - A 16-year-old Kenosha boy has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in the killing of a neighbor.
Kawanis Trotter must also spend seven years under extended supervision once he’s no longer behind bars.
Authorities said Trotter and 17-year-old Roddee Daniel broke into Capri Walker’s house in September of 2008 to steal an XBox video game system and other items. And Daniel beat the 51-year-old Walker to death with a baseball bat after she woke up.
Trotter struck a plea deal in which he was convicted of felony murder and two counts of burglary – and he testified against Daniel as part of that deal.
Daniel was convicted in May of first-degree intentional homicide and burglary. He got life plus 5 years.
