Young Woman Gets Life for Role in Murder When She Was Seventeen

February 11, 2006 - Posted at 12:26 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ A 23-year-old St. Louis woman faces life in

prison for her role in the torture death of a woman who was killed

so she wouldn't testify in a murder case.

Crystal Barge was convicted yesterday in St. Louis of

first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the May 2000 death

of 19-year-old Danielle Montgomery. Barge and two co-defendants _

Charaty White and Sherlene Franklin _ beat, stabbed and choked

Montgomery.

Officials say Montgomery's boyfriend, Charles Liston, who was in

jail awaiting trial for murder, persuaded White and Franklin to

kill Montgomery. They enlisted Barge to help.

Liston and White are serving life sentences. Franklin struck a

deal, agreeing to testify in exchange for life in prison plus 15

years. She's scheduled to be sentenced next week.
