— A Wallace woman has been sentenced to at least 7½ years in prison for her role in two slayings, authorities said.

Rochael Delisa Dobson, 19, pleaded guilty this week to two counts of accessory after the fact to first-degree murder. She was sentenced to 90 to 117 months in prison on both counts.

The charges stem from the September 2007 shooting death of Earl Jeffrey Newton, 31, inside his Harrells home and the May 2007 shooting death of Duplin County cab driver Jessie Faison Jr., 63.

Dobson was the sixth person to plead guilty and be sentenced in the crimes.
