NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Canton accomplice in a New Philadelphia killing was sentenced to 23 years to life in prison on Friday.

He had pleaded guilty to aggravated murder charges.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Te Quan Franklin planned the drug robbery back in March.

That robbery resulted in the shooting death of 22-year-old Gaven Carlisle on 11th Street NW in New Phila.

The triggerman 19-year-old Sajaad Butler of Canton entered a plea to similar charges earlier.

He’s to be sentenced next week.
