Turman’s sentence is 10 years flat time, which means her time in prison will be served without receiving credit for good time and she will not receive adjustments to her sentencing such as parole or probation.
According to police, Turman was upset after she and a man had a sexual encounter and the man left. Turman and her friend, Shykeem Jones, returned to the apartment with a gun.
At the time of the incident, Katoa and four others were inside the apartment, and Jones ordered them to get on the ground at gunpoint. Katoa was fatally shot after he decided to get in a fight with them.
Katoa was not the man involved in the sexual encounter with Turman, court paperwork said.
