St. Louis man sentenced for deaths of girl, fetus

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis man has been sentenced to life plus 150 years in prison for the killing of a teenage girl and an assault on a pregnant woman who lost her unborn child.

Brandon McGuire, 28, won’t be eligible for parole under the sentences pronounced Friday by St. Louis Circuit Judge Donald McCullin.

The crimes occurred in 2006.

KMOV-TV reports McGuire was convicted last month of first-degree murder, rape and sodomy in the death of 16-year-old Keyandra Jackson. McGuire admitted having sexual contact but denied killing the girl, whose body was found in a trash bin.

He also admitted having sexual contact with the 41-year-old pregnant woman.

In that case, he was convicted of kidnap and assault as well as second-degree murder for the loss of her unborn baby.
