A Brooklyn judge sentenced a woman to 22 years to life in prison for the cold-blooded murder of a former gang member.
“He was my husband. We were supposed to start our life together, but it was cut short,” Laseana Reddick, the widow of Leonard Reddick, said outside Brooklyn Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Tyaisha Key shot Reddick, 29, to death on June 21, 2017, during a dice game outside of Union-Sutter Houses in Brownsville.
A jury convicted Key of murder and weapons possession and Justice Danny Chun imposed the prison sentence.
Key, 28, was seen on surveillance video running to her house and returning to the group of dice players with a gun. The cause of the fatal dispute between the acquaintances was unclear.
One of the four shots fired hit Reddick in the back while he was trying to run away, prosecutors said.
