A Denison, Texas, woman found guilty of first-degree manslaughter last month has been sentenced to four years in prison.
Alora Dannin Hix, 21, was originally charged with second-degree murder for her involvment in the slaying of Dresean Jaron Jones, 19, who was gunned down at a vacant lot in Cartwright last August. A Bryan County jury found her guilty of the lesser charge of first-degree manslaughter and recommended a four-year prison term.
During a sentencing hearing Monday, District Judge Mark Campbell carried out the jury’s recommendation and sentenced Hix to four years in prison. She was given credit for time served.
A woman accused of luring a man to Cartwright where he was then shot and killed has been found guilty of first-degree manslaughter.
Alora Dannin Hix, 21, Denison, Texas, had been charged with second-degree murder for being involved in the killing of Dresean Jaron Jones, 19, who was gunned down at a vacant lot in Cartwright last August.
Investigators said that Jones was murdered because he failed to provide marijuana that he had been paid for.
According to an affidavit by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Wesley Dylan Kelley, 19, Durant, had given Jones $500 for marijuana, and when Jones failed to provide it, Kelley went to Dustin Shawn Metcalf, 28, Calera, for help. They then met with Harold Ray Hass, 23, residency not listed, and Hix.
The affidavit states that Hix lured Jones to Cartwright by promising sexual favors. Investigators said Jones began to run away and he was shot in the back by Hass after Metcalf said to shoot him.
Kelley pleaded guilty in April to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 35 years in prison with the last five years suspended.
Hass and Metcalf are charged with first-degree murder, and they have disposition hearings scheduled in August.
