If they have no luck on appeals, they will — as they’ve been ordered to — die in prison.
Heavy sentences were handed down last week to the trio convicted of murder in the death of Jordan Collins, 23, after luring him into a robbery through the Plenty Of Fish dating app in DeKalb County. The three are members of 9 Trey Bloods street gang, authorities said.
Demarco “Blazalino” Butler, 28, and Antonio “Killa” Avery, 26, were sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 50 years, court records show. Nashea Poole, 22, got life without parole, plus 40 years.
Collins and his brother, Chad, invited over Poole and Clarissa McGhee, 22, who pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, over to a home near Lithonia for a double date. It was Sept. 1, 2016.
The brothers didn’t realize two men were waiting to rob them outside of the home, the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office said.
