LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Sentencing has been scheduled for a 21-year-old woman who was convicted earlier this year in the 2014 killing of her roommate and former employer.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1JgPdsR ) reports Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn is set to be sentenced Sept. 4 in Douglas County District Court. She was convicted on March 20 of premeditated first-degree murder for the death of Harold Sasko.

Authorities say McLinn drugged the 52-year-old pizza shop owner with sleeping pills, bound and nearly decapitated him at the home they shared.

A jury has recommended that McLinn be sentenced to 50 years in prison with no chance of parole.
