Justice For Shelley Hilliard-Killer Sentenced
Here's an update in the Shelley Hilliard murder case.
30 year old Qasim Raqib, the killer of transwoman Michele 'Shelley' Hilliard was arrested back in December and charged with her murder. Raqib pleaded guilty back on March 7 to second degree murder charges.
He was sentenced on March 26 by Judge Bruce Morrow to serve 25-40 years in jail for the brutal killing in which he dismembered and burned 19 year old Hilliard's body on Detroit's East side.
The sentence won't bring Shelley back, but at least this waste of DNA will be rotting in jail for it.
