Milwaukee gang leader sentenced for role in rapper's murder

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee street gang leader was sentenced to 16 years in prison Thursday, for supervising the murder of a rap music artist on New Year's Day of 2013.

28-year-old Victor Stewart ended up helping prosecutors, by testifying against three other suspects in the slaying of 22-year-old Emily Young. Stewart pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless homicide, after he was given a break for his cooperation.

Young performed under the name "Yung LT." She was known as Evon Young before she changed genders to become a woman.

Prosecutors said four gang members were looking for marijuana when they went to the home Young shared with their co-defendant Billy Griffin. A scuffle followed, and Young was later shot.

Ashanti McAlister shot Young three times and strangled her. Authorities never found her body, after searching a landfull for the remains.

McAlister was sentenced to life in prison, with a possible supervised release date in 2066 when he's 72.
