FRESNO, Calif. --Dawn Singh, the getaway driver after the robbery and murder of a Kerman couple, will be spending the rest of her life in prison.
Singh was sentenced at the Fresno County Courthouse Tuesday morning to two consecutive life terms. A jury found Singh guilty last month in the murders of Gary and Sandra Debartolo in July 2009.
Prosecutors say Singh helped plan a pot robbery at the house and refused to leave behind Leroy Johnson, even after she knew he'd killed the couple.
Singh was not in the house at the time the couple was killed. But her attorney says California law makes it murder to participate in any potentially violent crime in which someone is killed.
