ST. LOUIS – A Spanish Lake woman pleaded guilty to reduced charges in a 2017 murder count in St. Louis and was sentenced to nine years in prison on Friday.
Makala Mayo pleaded guilty to one charge of involuntary manslaughter. Mayo is convicted for her role as an accomplice in the murder of Amber Green in north St. Louis.
Green, 25, and Jalen Woods, 17, died at a gas station on the 1600 block of North Union Boulevard. Investigators say Green and Woods were shot dead on June 3, 2017 while they were in a car with three others.
In exchange for Mayo’s plea, an assistant district attorney agreed to dismiss 15 additional charges against her, including first-degree murder charges and multiple first-degree assault charges.
“That’s a hell of a deal, Ms. Mayo,” a judge told Mayo Friday.
Another man, Ollie Lynch, is also being charged in the deaths of Green and Woods.
