Hawthorne woman gets life for murder

HAWTHORNE, Md. - A 25-year-old from Hawthorne was sentenced to life in prison Friday for soliciting the death of a man last year.

Laquesha Lewis was convicted Oct. 30, 2013 of first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Robert Holiday.

According to the Baltimore County State's Attorney office, Holiday was shot along with two other people at a bus stop near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Old Eastern Avenue at approximately 11:45 p.m. on Feb. 18, 2013. 

Holiday was shot twice in the back, while the other two victims survived the attack. Police said Holiday had been in a physical confrontation with Lewis at a home on the  200 block of Shagbark Rd. during his attempt to visit his child. 

Lewis was then in communication with others to solicit them to kill Holiday and had sent a text to Holiday telling him he would soon die, according to the state's attorney.
