Pregnant Woman Murdered
(2008-02-26)
(wgvu) - A 21-year-old man convicted of
killing his pregnant girlfriend has been sentenced to life in
prison without parole.
Justin Scott Stair was sentenced Monday to the mandatory term
for a first-degree murder conviction.
Stair was found guilty Jan. 31 in the death of 28-year-old
Dawnette Marie Harrell. Grand Traverse County jurors also convicted
Stair of assaulting a pregnant woman and causing the death of a
fetus.
Harrell was about 5 weeks pregnant when she disappeared April 2,
2006. Her body was discovered more than a year later, near the home
of Stairs' parents in Whitewater Township. She had been shot in the
head.
Officers say they found a .32-caliber revolver, Harrell's car
keys and her purse in the house.
