A District man was sentenced Tuesday to 32 years in prison for the 2010 slaying of an 18-year-old D.C. teenager whose body still has not been found.
D.C. Superior Court Judge William M. Jackson sentenced Brian Gaither, 25, to prison after he pleaded guilty last year to first-degree murder in the death of Latisha Frazier.
Prosecutors said that in August 2010, Gaither and about a half-dozen of his friends lured Frazier into an apartment in the 1700 block of Trenton Place SE to “teach her a lesson” for allegedly stealing $900 from one of the friends. She was beaten, kicked, stomped and choked, prosecutors said. They said there was no evidence Frazier stole any money.
