Life sentences given to three people convicted of carjacking

Three people involved in a carjacking and murder each received a sentence of life in prison today.
Nancy Johnson, age 34 of Davison, Matthew Riselay, age 20 of Flint, and James Horn, age 22 also of Flint were told they would spend life in prison.
The judge referred to James Horn as the "instigator" of the carjacking.
Authorities said back in March of 2012, Leslie Mills of Grand Blanc was getting gas on Corunna Road in Flint Township when she was shot several times and killed by Johnson and Riselay.
A fourth person, Phillip Eason, age 24 of Davison, plead no contest to helping hide the gun after the fact. As part of the plea deal, he was given 48 months of probation.
Eason still faces unrelated drug charges as a habitual offender and faces up to 40 years for that charge.
Kevin Mills, the husband of Leslie Mills, told NBC25 that, "I'm satisfied with the fact that I can put them out of my mind. I don't have to wonder whether they're going to be convicted. I get to put that part behind me.
Later, the judge allowed Mills to tell each defendant what his wife was like.
