A woman involved in the death of Cristobal Bacceras Contrerras pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated battery today.

21-year-old Kelesha Dorsey was then sentenced to 40 years with 20 to serve.

Dorsey will spend 20 years behind bars for voluntary manslaughter and 10 years for armed robbery, which will run concurrently.

She will then serve 20 years probation for the aggravated battery charge.

Dorsey was sentenced under the Probations Options Management Act, slapped with a $2,500 fine and will pay a $32/month probation fee. 

According to testimony in a previous trial, Dorsey lured Bacerras-Conteras to an apartment on Wood Creek Way on December 23, 2015 with a promise of sex for money.

Instead he was shot by Kyle Anthony Strother and robbed of $500.

Dorsey and 22-year-old Delaney Ray testified during Strother’s trial.

He was convicted and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Judge Bryant Durham called the killing “a senseless act done over $500 that took a father of two away from his children.”
