Two adults who admit they took part in a planned attack that led to the shooting of a 21-year-old man in St. John’s last January have been sentenced in court.
Forty-two-year old Mabel Stanley and 55-year-old Harold Noftall say they helped in a plan to lure 21-year-old Clarence Legge to their apartment at 74 Springdale Street, and took part in an assault on the young man over sexual text messages.
Nineteen-year-old Rebecca Murphy and a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named were also charged in the case.
According to the agreed statement of facts signed by Stanley and Noftall, Murphy was sharing sexual text messages with the victim. It was the youth who pulled the trigger. The plan was only to give him a beating, but the youth shot Legge when he broke from his restraints.
All four were charged with attempted murder, all pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of aggravated assault.

Both will get credit for time served.
