The killer of Tessa Majors has been sentenced to 14 years to life in prison. Rashaun Weaver, 16, pleaded guilty to stabbing the 18-year-old student during a bungled robbery two years ago.

He was just 14-years-old when he attacked Ms Majors in Manhattan’s Morningside Park, several blocks from Bernard College, i 2019.

“I want to apologize to Tessa’s family for my immature and thoughtless actions,” he told the court in a prepared statement, ifølge NY Daily News, adding that she deserved a long life and that he was “embarrassed.”

“I would give anything to go back in time so that it never happened.”

The family said in a victim impact statement read out at the sentencing that Tessa is “dead forever and is not coming back”, i følge NBC New York.

The pain is immeasurable and does not go away,” sa uttalelsen.

Zyairr Davis, hvem var 13 at the time of the attack, pled guilty in 2020 to first-degree robbery and received 18 months detention. Luciano Lewis, deretter 14, pled guilty in September to second-degree murder and first-degree robbery and was sentenced to nine years to life.

Weaver’s guilty plea to murder and robbery charges in December led to the longest conviction of the three in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday.
