Sentencing handed down for woman involved in Sharon murder
A New Castle woman has been sentenced related to a shooting in Sharon that took the life of a father of two.
Alexis Holmes, 22, was sentenced to 18 to 40 years in prison during a hearing in Mercer County Common Pleas Court on Friday.
Holmes pleaded guilty to felony robbery and felony burglary.
In February Eddie Robinson Jr., 27, was sentenced to 15 to 45 years in prison for his involvement in the shooting.
Robinson pleaded guilty earlier to third-degree murder, animal cruelty, and perjury.
Both Robinson and Holmes were both originally charged with the murder of 24-year-old Khalil Hopson.
Hopson was shot inside of his Cedar Avenue home on May 23, 2019 and later died at the hospital.
The two were picked up in June of 219 at a hotel in Youngstown after officials learned they had fled from Pennsylvania.
One man allegedly held her at gunpoint on the porch, and the other followed Hopson into the house.
According to Holmes, she later heard a gunshot.
However, a further investigation by police uncovered a phone with text messages between Holmes and Robinson that showed them allegedly discussing plans to rob Hopson of several thousands of dollars.
