PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Pensacola woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for her part in the fatal beating and burning of another woman.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://goo.gl/W1JSbQ) reports that Kiesha Pugh was sentenced Friday after pleading no contest to second-degree murder and arson.

Armed with a hammer, pipe and crowbar, prosecutors say Pugh, Gregory Williams and Anthony Pressley went to 33-year-old Melinda McCormick’s home to rob her in March 2013. They wrestled the victim to the ground, beat her to death and set her home ablaze to destroy evidence.

Pressley previously pleaded no contest to murder and was sentenced to 60 years in prison. Williams received a life sentence after a jury convicted him of murder and arson.
